‘And revenge is sweet’, by the logical theory of convertible opposites, ‘for where failure is painful, success must be pleasant; and angry men, whilst they are vexed beyond all measure if they miss their revenge, are equally delighted in the anticipation of it’. ἀνυπερβλήτως, ‘unsurpassably’, a rare word, found as adj. in Isocr. Paneg. § 71, Xen. Cyrop. VIII 7. 15, Plat. Defin. 412 B, Dem. Olynth. II 23. 11, Epitaph. 1389. 7, Lycurg. c. Leocr. § 101, and more frequently in Polybius. Of the adverb I find only this one example. [Cf., however, Rhet. ad Alexandrum, 12, 1430 b 25, ἀνυπερβλήτως τιμωροῦνται, Index Aristotelicus. S.]
