(a) In Laws penalty, fine for breach of law, trespass, non-payment of debt, etc. See Cóic Con. 6 . Bürgschaft 38 . In some passages the amount of the s.¤ is fixed in terms of bó, cumal, sét: aic macu ara-[m]bera boin smachta ┐ imdechta `die Kuh der Tarifbusse', Cóic Con. 14 . in tan is trian eneclainne is trian smachta . . . in tan is lan eneclainne is lan smachta .i. leth secht cumala, O'D. 833 ( H 3.17, 595 ).

See also § 29 , and cpds. below). In Cóic Con. Fug. the s.¤ for offences during the hearing of a law-suit is fixed at one `bó' (see Cóic Con. p. 62 , 63 , 81 ): inannus smachta riu uile . . . is é int inannus smachta in bo i nemaithne na conaire, 23 § 22 . inunn in s.¤ fil i-nne[ma]ichni [na] conaire re ngabail tacrai, 15 § 2 .

Cf. ZCP xv 259 , xvi 210 . In other cases the s.¤ appears to have been variable: gaimorgain mbruigrechta da trian a fochraice is e a s.¤ `for winter trespass . . . two thirds of the rent is the s.¤-fine', Laws iv 88.2 . smachta cacha raithe, ni cuma dono s.¤ samfuachta ┐ gaimfuachta . . . it truma smachta geimrid oldaiti smachta samraid, ar i[s] sruithe bes (sic leg.) beatha na mbo oldas a ngeart, ar it geinither fer i samradh. ni tha imurro ní a ngeimre (i.e. the s.¤ varies according to season), 88 - 90 . smachta samraidh; miach cach airlime . . . leth meich ma fri athbrondad . . . it da miach . . . fri geamfuacht, 90.16 . In a table given O'Curry 1022 ( H 3.18, 431b ) of trespasses by pigs the s.¤ is always double the aithgin. re s.¤ cāna (sic leg.) `inbetreff der Tarifbusse für (Verletzung der) cāin (des gesetzten Rechts)', Cóic Con. 19.2 .

Treidib miach miter cach nethemain, miach i nathlumpaire, lethmiach fri monai ar airlim, iv 78.1 ff .

In the follg. exx. taken as meaning requirement, requisite (i.e. the tools which tenants of land must have for fencing): smachta ime, rama fri clais, soc fri coraid, biail fri dairime, fidbad fri felmad `the requisites for the fences are . . .', Laws iv 72.1 .i. is e ní smachtaigther acu ac denum na híme, 13 Comm . cateat smachta imi . . .? .i. rāma fri clais, etc. `Erfordernisse', ZCP xv 314 § 8 Comm .

See also under II (a) supra. ¤gille. Exact meaning not clear. Perh. pledge for payment of a fine or penalty (see Cóic Con. 63 , 75 f . ). Usually folld. by the attrib. gs. sechtmaid, and therefore prob. one-seventh of the fixed `smacht' ( Cóic Con. 9 ): s. .uii. maid na bo (.i. a n-urlaim coitcinn) fri cert, Cóic Con. 23 § 21 . glethir cert [co s]machtgilli ` cert wird mit einem s.
