After an overview of various forms of crucifixion in the ancient world, the available archaeological data and artistic renderings of different means of crucifixion are discussed. The New Testament information concerning the crucifixion of Jesus is then discussed and evaluated. It is concluded that, in the view of the absence of convincing literary evidence, the statue representing the 'crucifixion' of Marsyas in the Hermitage museum provides a contemporary example of a possible manner in which Jesus could haye been crucified.
