Notes:

A. Martyr suspended by the hands, which are bound behind his back, and having the shoulders weighted with lumps of salt, a wooden gag being also forced into his mouth.
B. Martyr suspended by a hook.

Yet others were suspended by the arms, both or only one, or else by the tips of the thumbs, heavy and unconscionable weights being attached at the same time to the feet. Of others again we find it recorded that they were suspended hanging from a high wall, stones being fastened to neck and feet, or ropes bound to their bodies, their shoulders loaded with great lumps of salt, and for their greater torment wooden gags being put in their mouth.” (p. 8)
