These kindly, priests, shaman, devotees or whatever you prefer to call them, are remembered as "spirits of the water," and are deemed to be beneficent if given the proper respect.
If with his bronze lancet the physician cureth a man of a serious wound or an eye abscess, ten silver shekels shall he receive.
If the patient be the slave of someone, two silver shekels shall his owner give the physician.
If a physician causeth the death of a free man or the loss of an eye, his hands shall be cut off.
If a physician causeth the death of the slave of a poor man, one of his own slaves shall the physician give him. If a physician causeth the loss of the slave's eye, half the slave's value shall he pay.
