the cruel machine of death

bull weapon death

inventing a new machine that can make life easier for humans on earth is always a welcome development but some use their talent to invent cruel/useless machines. this guy may
be the one who most deserved to die at the
hand of his own invention. Perillos was a
bronze worker who designed a device called
the Brazen Bull to be used to painfully execute
criminals. The Brazen Bull was a hollow bull.
Prisoners were locked inside and roasted to
death by a fire underneath. The device was
even designed to channel the screams of the
burning prisoner out of its nose to sound like
a bull. Perillos pitched his invention to
Phalaris, a tyrant lord of Acragas in Sicily.
After Perillos showed Phalaris the bull, the
inventor was put inside and a fire was lit
underneath him. History isn’t clear about if
Perillos was pulled out before dying, only to
be thrown off a cliff by Phalaris’ men, or if he
expired within the bull. Either way, the bull did
him in.
