Ancient Romans Dealt Out A Shocking Punishment

In Ancient Rome, the punishment for killing your father was the death penalty.

But, uh, not just any penalty.

Your prosecutors would sew you up in a sack

along with a monkey, a viper, a dog, and a rooster.

The punishment varied slightly depending on the ruling emperor;

some rulers preferred more snakes and others more dogs.
