ˤ
Ammu, "paternal kinsman," and Rāpi, "healer"; (ca. 1728 –1686 BC middle chronology) was the sixth king of Babylon. He becamethe first king of the Babylonian Empire, extending Babylon's control overMesopotamia by winning a series of wars against neighboring king-doms. Although his empire controlled all of Mesopotamia at the time of his death, his successors were unable to maintain his empire. Owing tohis reputation in modern times as an ancient law-giver, Hammurabi'sportrait is in many government buildings throughout the world.
