The Brazen Bull: A torture device invented by Perillos of Athens (ca. 570 to 554 BC). It's a hollow bull, made entirely of brass, with a door in the side. The condemned were shut in the bull and a fire was set under it. The head of the ox was to be designed so that the screams were converted into the sound of a bellowing of a bull. Ironically, Perillos died demonstrating his invention.
Brazen Bull: The Brazen Bull was invented in Ancient Greece, by Perillos of Athens. When a victim was placed inside the brazen bull, he or she was slowly burned to death. The device gradually became more sophisticated, until the Greeks invented a complex system of tubes in order to make the victim's screams sound more like an infuriated bull, and also made it so the smoke from it rose in clouds of incense. - Wikipedia
