Equity.  Equity is a development of justice, and arises among such as do not come into conflict with the communal equality.  This more subtle recognition of the principle of equilibrium is applied to cases where nothing is prescribed by law.  Equity looks forwards and backwards, its maxim being, "Do unto others as you would that they should do unto you”.  Aequum means: "This principle is conformable to our equality; it tones down even our small differences to an appearance of equality, and expects us to be indulgent in cases where we are not compelled to pardon”.
