      ... and the hangman tied him (Hasanak the Vizier) hardly and pulled down the ropes, and [they] shouted "stone him", [but] nobody did and everybody was loudly crying, especially Nishapuris, so they gave money to a bunch of knaves to throw stones, but the man was dead, because the hangman had already put the rope on his neck and strangled him.
