Abstract :
Did Jesus carry a whole cross or just a part, a patibulum? Whether patibulum is horizontal or not is an issue in crucifixion studies. Sallust, Hist. 3 frg. 9, could play a role in this discussion. By a thorough survey of the narrative context and the many text-critical issues, we hope to contribute something to the discussion by arguing that patibulum in Sallust, Hist. 3 frg. 9, should be understood as horizontal.
