    Here's a summary of the Twelve Tables.


    I only see one possible answer in that site. What do you think it is?

  • History -

    (1) created equality before the law for all citizens?

    But I don't think that was in the Code of Hammurabi

  • History -

    I don't think so. The 12 Tables gave more privileges to the rich and politically powerful. Women had few privileges.

    How about # 3?

  • History -

    How is that? Because it is written?

  • History -

    Yes. The laws in the Tables make it difficult to abuse the underclasses. The key is the law -- which in all three cases were written.

    Ohh ok I understand. Thank you very much! I appreciate your help! =)

    Great! I'm glad you understand. And -- you're welcome!
