Jehohanan in Wikipedia
Jehohanan (Yehohanan) was a man put to death by crucifixion
in the 1st Century CE, whose ossuary was found in 1968 when
building contractors working in Giv'at ha-Mivtar, a Jewish
neighborhood in northern East Jerusalem, Israel,
accidentally uncovered a Jewish tomb. The Jewish stone
ossuary had the Hebrew inscription "Jehohanan the son of
Hagkol". In his initial anthropological observations in 1970
at Hebrew University, Nicu Haas, concluded Jehohanan was
crucified with his arms stretched out with his forearms
nailed, supporting crucifixion on a two-beamed latin
cross. However, the 1985 reappraisal by Joseph Zias of
the Israel Department of Antiquities and Museums and Dr.
Eliezer Sekeles at the Hebrew University - Hadassah Medical
School discovered multiple errors in Haas's observations:
the heel nail was shorter than Haas reported and the nail
pierced only one heel, pieces of bone had been misidentified
and some of the bone fragments were from another
individual, the lack of traumatic injury to the forearm
and metacarpals of the hand suggested the arms were tied
rather than nailed to the cross and Jehohanan may have
extended his arms upward on a crux simplex (simple upright
Jehohanan Scripture - 2 Chronicles 23:1
And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and
took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham, and

Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri,
into covenant with him.
