[ Prologue ]

According to the Code of Hammurabi, the first written law of mankind,

He who removes the eye of a free man removes his eye.
He who breaks the bone of a free man breaks his bone.
To life as life,
Eye for eye,
In this way
Establish an order of persecution and revenge.

The law is unequal according to status.
As we do not admit accidental accidents or self-defense
When a carpenter's daughter dies while building a house, he kills the carpenter's daughter.

Inflicting harm to the perpetrator equal to the damage suffered by the victim
Humanity's first 'law of revenge'

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
