[2] A wrong act is greater when there is no adequate punishment for it, but all are insufficient; when there is no remedy, because it is difficult if not impossible to repair it;1 and when the person injured cannot obtain legal satisfaction, since it is irremediable; for justice and punishment are kinds of remedies.

1 Understanding ἰᾶσθαι. Or “to punish adequately,” supplying οὗ μὴ ἴση τιμωρία.
