# 654 in the Bilingual Legends series: This book is in both English and Assyrian Neo-Aramaic.
The ancient Babylonian King Hammurabi is only remembered for one reason today. But how much do we really know about this once mighty man?

As the Akkadian language is dead, this book is instead presented in another ancient and endangered language spoken within a similar geographic region.
