[484b] dawns the full light of natural justice. And it seems to me that Pindar adds his evidence to what I say, in the ode where he says—

“Law the sovereign of all,
Mortals and immortals,

Pind. Fr. 169 (Bergk)
which, so he continues,—

“Carries all with highest hand,
Justifying the utmost force: in proof I take
The deeds of Hercules, for unpurchased

Pind. Fr. 169 (Bergk)
—the words are something like that—I do not know the poem well—but it tells how he drove off the cows
