Yes, says he, but if one commit other
wrongs concerning mines, for these, too, actions may be brought. Certainly,
Pantaenetus; but what are these? If one smokes out another, if one makes an
armed attack, if one makes cuttings which encroach upon another's workings.
These are the other cases; but I, of course, have done nothing of this sort to
you, unless you hold that people who seek to recover what they had risked in a
loan to you are making an armed attack. If you hold that view, you have mining
suits against all those who risk their own money.
