prospegnumi (προσπήγνυμι), "to fix or fasten to, impale, crucify" occurs only once at the Acts of the Apostles .The English term cross derives from the Latin word crux.The Greek and Latin words corresponding to "crucifixion" applied to many different forms of painful execution, from impaling on a stake to affixing to a tree, to an upright pole (a crux simplex) or to a combination of an upright (in Latin, stipes) and a crossbeam (in Latin, patibulum).Seneca the Younger wrote: "I see crosses there, not just of one kind but made in many different ways: some have their victims with head down to the ground; some impale their private parts; others stretch out their arms on the gibbet".He wrote that the condemned would have severe difficulty inhaling, due to hyper-expansion of the chest muscles and lungs.The condemned would therefore have to draw himself up by the arms, leading to exhaustion, or have his feet supported by tying or by a wood block.

The person executed may have been attached to the cross by rope, though nails and other sharp materials are mentioned in a passage by the Judean historian Josephus, where he states that at the Siege of Jerusalem (70), "the soldiers out of rage and hatred, nailed those they caught, one after one way, and another after another, to the crosses, by way of jest".Crucifixion was most often performed to dissuade its witnesses from perpetrating similar (usually particularly heinous) crimes.Victims were sometimes left on display after death as a warning to any other potential criminals.When no longer able to lift himself, the condemned would die within a few minutes.Some scholars, including Frederick Zugibe, posit other causes of death.
