Crucifixion was invented by the Persians in BC and developed, during Roman times, into a punishment for the most serious of criminals. The upright wooden cross was the most common technique, and the time victims took to die would depend on how they were crucified. Those accused of robbery were often tied to the crucifix and, because they could better support their weight with their arms, might survive for several days.
