Tertullus (2015 pre-production)
In first Century Jewish law, a felon, after conviction and sentence, still had opportunity to plead for mercy. If any testimony in mitigation on behalf of the convict should be presented, it would be considered, and judgment might be altered accordingly. Even when the convicted person was taken to the place of execution, he or she still had a chance of redemption. A rider on horseback would follow the procession, continually looking back to the city gates for a signal from a flag bearer. The flag bearer would, if there should be any new evidence or mercy to be shown, lift the flag and wave it calling back the cortège.
