A discussion of the Gortyn law code, one of the earliest known in the Greek world. Discovered in Gortyn, Crete, it is carved into a series of stone panels that once formed the walls of a public building and contains early laws of marriage, inheritance, and criminal law. Part 1 includes a discussion of the code's discovery and excavation, linguistic features, and a text and translation with commentary. Part 2 continues the text, translation, and commentary. Merriam's edition with text and commentary is well laid out and aptly translated. A clear and lucid introduction to and discussion of key document of Western law.
