Perhaps this is why Smith removed the phrase ‘improper punishment [. 1). The problem had effectively been debated at length, in the sense that the punishment, although due to the criminal, was not his right. For example, Grotius speaks out against the customary expression (vulgaris locutio qua dicitur poenam deberi ei, qui deliquit) according to which punishment was due to the criminal. 15 Therefore the punishment was due for reasons of equity, because it was right for a wrongdoing to be punished, but it was not intended to confer rights to any criminal, not even the ‘negative’ right of receiving punishment – and hence not even the right to demand that the punishment be just.

With all these different sources in different periods, Stoicism as a source is rather elusive. Therefore there is not only a problem of reconstruction, but also a problem of internal coherence as we find differences within Stoicism. Another important point to keep in mind on Smith and his classical sources is that during the Enlightenment Latin was the language of the literati. Yet Adam Smith possessed also a serious command of Greek. The writer Henry Mackenzie, to whom Walter Scott referred as the ‘Scottish Addison’, is reported to have compared Smith with Dr.
