Hammurabi was born circa 1810 BC in Babylon, modern day Iraq. The lasting contribution of Hammurabi on Babylonian society was his set of laws written on twelve stones and displayed publicly for all to see, the most common being, "Eye for eye, tooth for tooth." The laws are commonly known as Hammurabi's Code.
