Scaphism was a method of execution that was designed to inflict a lingering, painful and humiliating death, to those who were unfortunate enough to experience it.

The victim would be trapped between two boats, or other hollow objects, and their exposed head, arms and legs covered in honey. They would then be force fed nothing but milk and honey, before being left in the sun, or in a stagnant pool. Flies, other insects and rodents would be attracted to the victim, and would slowly eat them from both within and without.
