This is law number 202 of The Hammurabi Code, a code of laws enacted ca. 1780 BCE by the sixth Babylonian king, Hammurabi, as translated by Leonard William King. The Code of Hammurabi was one of several sets of laws in the Ancient Near East. An "s" was left out of the question. The Code actually states: "If any one strike the body of a men higher rank he shall receive sixty blows with a ox whip in public."

What is the oldest written code of law?

Many believe that the first ever written down code of laws was Hammurabi's code. Even Jeopardy has assert this fact. However this is incorrect. The oldest extant law code that has been found is the law code of Ur-Nammu which dates to around 2100BC (Hammurabi's law code only dates to around 1790BC). The form of the laws follow the "if...then..." format that is followed in subsequent law codes - such as Hammurabi's. For example: "if a man commits murder he must be killed" and "If a man knocks out a tooth of another man, he shall pay two shekels of silver."While the code of Ur-Nammu is the oldest code for which we have found copies, we have found references to an older law code of which we have not found copies - the code of Urukagina. (Urukagina reigned between 2380-2360BC) While we have no copies of this code, we know some of its content from references to the laws. For example Urukagina exempted widows from paying taxes, and made it illegal for a rich man to force a poor man to sell something.
