The new laws antedate Hammurabi by a dozen years, probably. Circumstantial evi- dence shows that the date at the beginning of one manuscript is a year of king Dadusha. The editio princeps was given by A. Goetze; the next full edition was by Reuven Yaron of the Hebrew University (Jerusalem) in 1969. Professor Yaron now gives a second and revis- ed edition of his earlier book.

Meanwhile, new important studies on these laws have appeared: B.L. Eichler, Literary structure in the Laws of
