PLUTARCH

has been appointed to punish all crimes in the highest place ; no criminal has there ever yet been, so small or so great as to escape. But there are three modes of punishment, and each mode has its proper guardian minister. Some men are punished at once in the body and through their body, and these swift Retribution handles ; her method is a gentle one, and passes over many crimes which ask for expiation. Those whose cure is a heavier matter are passed after death to justice by the daemon. The wholly incurable justice rejects ; and these the third, and the fiercest, of the satellites of Adrasteia, whose name is Erinnys, chases, as they wander and try to escape in all directions ; and it is pitiful and cruel how she brings them all to nothing and plunges them into the gulf which is beyond speech or sight. Whoever makes his way here from earth unchastened and unpurged, justice firmly seizes him, with his soul naked and manifest. And first she shows him to good parents, if such he has, or to ancestors, a contemptible and unworthy sight. If these are all bad, he sees them punished and is seen by them, and so is justified during a long time, while each of his passions is dislodged by pains and toils. Scars and weals left by particular passions are more persistent in some men than in others. And look,' he said, ` at those motley colours upon the souls, which come from every source. There is the dusky, dirty red, which is the smear made by meanness and greed ; the fiery blood-red of cruelty and harshness. Where you see the bluish grey, there intemperance in pleasures has been rubbed away, and a heavy work it was ; malice and envying have been there to inject that violet beneath the skin, as cuttle-fishes their ink. For down on earth vice brings out the colours, but here the final result of purgation and chastisement is this, that the soul becomes radiant all over and of one hue.' Having said this, he began to lead him on, covering, as it seemed, a space of infinite extent with unfaltering ease, borne upwards on the rays of light, as though by wings, until he reached a great chasm which yawned downwards.
