Notes & Transcripts

This was the first written code of laws in the history of Greece, though not the first to be handed down by the gods.  The Lorcrians like dit so well that they required any man who wished to propose a new law to speak with a rope around his neck, so that, if his motion failed, he might be hanged with a minimum of public inconvenience.
