Austrian archaeologists have unearthed the oldest cuneiform seal inscription fragment ever found in Egypt. The piece dates to the Old Babylonian reign of King Hammurabi, who brought the world its first code of law, between 1792 - 1750 BC. Egypt's culture minister Farouk Hosni announced the discovery today, made by the Austrian Archaeological Mission in a pit at Tel El-Daba, modern name of ancient Avaris, 120km north-east of Cairo in the Nile Delta.

This is a huge find and I would love to see the tablet myself.

One thing that is still debatable though, is whether Hammurabi came before Moses or not. I do realize that contemporary dating puts Hammurabi as 300 years older than Moses but this is not proven.

Hammurabi's existence is factual.

On the other hand, there is no evidence (except for religious stories) that Moses ever even existed.

So, I'd go with Hammurabi.
