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). Clay, early 18th century.
Français : Prologue du Code d'Hammurabi (correspondant aux 305 premières cases inscrites de la stèle). Des lacunes dana la liste des bienfaits dispensés aux villes récemment annexées pourraient indiquer que la tablette est antérieur à la célèbre stèle en basalte. Argile, début du XVIIIe siècle av. J.-C.

Well I had this homework that Mrs. Morris gave us and it was really confusing it was the Code of Hammurabi and there were these crazy symbols that I didn't understand and this website didn't help for nothing really?!?!
