The law destroyed riches (6)


I believe the answer is:


'riches' is the definition.

'the law destroyed' is the wordplay.
'destroyed' indicates anagramming the letters.
'thelaw' anagrammed gives 'WEALTH'.

(Other definitions for wealth that I've seen before include "Possessions and resources" , "capital" , "Mammon" , "An abundance of valuable possessions or money" , "State of luxury" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
