Guilty were put in an upright sarcophagus that had spikes going into the eyes and vital organs, the spikes however were short enough to let the victim bleed out over several hours.
Accused had to pick up a red hot iron bar and walk 3 to 4 steps with it. At the trial if the hands were healing they were innocent, if not they were guilty.
The guilty had their thumbs put into place, a wooden bar slid over a metal bar, effectively crushing the thumbs
Guilty were put inside a metal bull statue after having their tongues cut out. Then a fire was lit and the person would scream and move, making the bull seem alive and more amusing to the audience.
They would tie you to a machine that would stretch until your limbs were dislocated or had fallen off
Guilty would be tied to a wheel that rolled over a rocky hill, fire, or large spikes.
