Satisdaction

SATISDACTION, civil law. This word is derived from the same root as satisfaction; for, in the same manner that to fulfill the demand which is made upon us, is called satisfaction, so satisdaction takes place when he who demands something has agreed to receive sureties instead of the thing itself. Dig. 2, 8, 1
