As to the harsh realities of death on the cross forum members tend to forget a few things.Hum, not evident ...
First is simple ecomomic consideratiions. The queastors of the Treasury were notoriously parsimonious
the senate and people of Rome wanted pirates bandits and rebels zDEAD.How they got that was irrelevant. torture wasnt a consiideration forthe denarius counters
Cheap executions were desirable. Nails cosg more than rope. Comex crosses costy more. S great consideration was the inherent laziness of provincial soldiers who were paid thhe same whatever they did. Provincial officiials werent spending their own precciious gold!
anyone who' commanded sooldiers lnows they tend to follow the path of least resistance.
