Comments: *Crucifixion

When it came to attaching people to the cross, was it ropes or nails or did it just depend?

When it was just the upright pole, it seems they were tied to it...and left to die of thirst (or starvation). Later on, as I understand it, only the most serious offenders were nailed to the crosses.
