Perillus condemned to the bronze bull by Phalaris, 16th century, (1870). A wood engraving of Phalaris (c570 BC), tyrant of Agrigentum in Sicily, who commissioned Perillus of Athens to make a brazen bull in which to execute criminals.

Phalaris was eventually overthrown by a popular uprising and he in turn met his end inside the bull
