#10  Scaphism


Scaphism is indeed a nasty form of torture. The victim would be stripped naked and forcibly fed large amounts of milk and honey. Additional honey was applied to their naked body. He or she would then be bound in place between two boats or hollowed out tree trunks with only their head, hands, and feet exposed. The contraption would then be left out in the hot sun or floated in a stagnant pond. The victim would eventually develop diarrhea from the mild and honey and as they sat in their own filth it would attract insects that would eventually entirely cover their body and eat their flesh.
