The Twelve Tables were similar to the Code of Hammurabi and Draco's code of laws in that they
1) created equality befor ethe law for all citizens
2)eliminated harsh penalties for crimes
3) made it more difficult for people to use the law to abuse lower classes
4) forced all male citizens into military service
Here's a summary of the Twelve Tables.
I only see one possible answer in that site. What do you think it is?
(1) created equality before the law for all citizens?
But I don't think that was in the Code of Hammurabi
I don't think so. The 12 Tables gave more privileges to the rich and politically powerful. Women had few privileges.
How about # 3?
How is that? Because it is written?
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!
