Draco (IPA pronunciation: [ˈdreikoʊ]; from Δράκων, IPA ['drakɔːn]) was the first law scribe of ancient Athens, Greece, seventh century B.C. The laws, transcribed in 621 BC when he was archon eponymous, were particularly harsh: the death penalty was the punishment for even minor offenses.
Draco's code was later largely revised by Solon, in the early 6th century BC, with the exception of homicide laws.
Draco may have been the first to codify Athenian law, or at least comprehensively record the laws; however, he was not the creator of those laws.
