Contrast Latin (lex, ius), French (loi, droit), German (Gesetz, Recht), etc. ). For “legal process,” the closest equivalent was dikê— “judgment,” “settlement,” “trial”—which, especially in its later form dikaiosynê, comes to mean “justice” with much the same broad range of meaning as the English word. Early Greek thinkers tended to be concerned with one or the other of two aspects of law: substance and process. The earliest are more concerned about the means of regulating conflict and bringing order to society (process); later there was more interest in the rules and standards that govern the way humans lived their lives (substance).

Affirms that “everything is done according to what is specified by law” and refers to recorded legal precedents, and “thousands of legal documents of trials, inheritance, and transfers of real and personal property, attest to the functioning legal system” (Brewer and Teeter 1999, 73; see also Théodoridès 1971; Lorton 1995; Jasnow 2003, 255). But it is debatable whether Egypt had a regular system of law courts following genuine legal codes, in the sense of systems of laws promulgated by a king, during most of the dynastic period.

PROLOGUE 5 “May any king appearing in this land at any time at all in the future heed the righteous commands that I have inscribed on this stone. May no one change the justice for the land which I have ordained and the verdicts for the land which I have rendered” (E14; Richardson 2000, 125). Anyone who violated or emended the code would fall under a curse (E19). Hammurabi’s code evidently influenced later legal codes, including the Assyrian, Hittite, and Jewish. Persian legal practices may also have had a direct influence on the Greeks who had numerous contacts with the Persian Empire over several centuries.
