The Brazen Bull was an ancient Greek construction to kill people. It was a hollow apparatus made of bronze with enough space to put in a human and a small door which could be closed. Below the bull a fire would be set. The death screams of the unlucky man or woman inside were amplified by the way the bull was built. Ironically legend has it that the despot Phalaris who first had a brazen bull built was attacked and defeated by another ruler, who then put the Phalaris himself into the bull. Karma is a bitch.
