I don't consider a single day as "slow lingering" when compared to the usual
length of time.

BTW how would you describe standard crucifixion, you know, the type that
takes about two weeks and causes death by exposure?

But it was much milder than the usual form of crucifixion, which is why
the Romans chose crucifixion as their method of execution.
