Ayin Tachat Ayin = 'an eye instead of/underneath an eye' Q: How do we know that it’s talking about monetary damages? Answer: That’s in the mesorah. It was told to Moshe at Har Sinai, as part of the Oral Torah.

But, there are also a few hints in the wording: For exammple, the Vilna Gaon points out : Tachat=underneath - the letters underneath the word Ayin is peh, kaf, samech, spelling kesef=money
