Season 120 - Day 12 of 14

Ancient Middle Eastern History

Which ancient King of Babylon first issued a legal code designed so that the punishment depended on the gravity of the crime?
It is often summarised as "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth", though it seems unjust in many ways to modern people, such as if a building collapsed and killed the owner's son, the builder's son would then be killed as a punishment.
