Description
English: Prologue of the Code of Hammurabi (the 305 first inscripted squares on the stele). Some gaps in the list of benefits bestowed on cities recently annexed by Hammurabi may prove the tablet is older than the celebrated basalt stele (also in the Louvre).
Français : Prologue du Code d'Hammurabi (correspondant aux 305 premières cases inscrites de la stèle). Des lacunes dans la liste des bienfaits dispensés aux villes récemment annexées pourraient indiquer que la tablette est antérieure à la célèbre stèle en basalte.
