Quartering.

Where they tie a person's limbs to four horses (ya know, one limb for each horse) and send the horses running in different directions.

Theres something for you to research.

From the second result I got when I searched on google

Attack/devouring by animals, such as dogs or wolves, as in Ancient Rome and the Biblical lion's den; by rodents (such as rats); by alligators or crocodiles, or carnivorous fish (such as piranhas or sharks); by crabs or by insects (such as ants)

By being thrown from a height. Rome executed murderers and traitors by flinging them from the Tarpeian Rock. Defenestration, the act of throwing someone from a window, has been used more by rebels and angry mobs than by official executions.

I was taught the punishment for murder was exile for a couple of years. Crime wasn't punished very severerly.

Maybe this was during a certain period though (around Cicero's time).
Not only would it disrupt the fabric of time and space, but it would totally ruin the surprise!
