      ... and the hangman tied him (Hasanak the Vizier) tightly and pulled down the ropes, and [they] shouted that "throw stones!", [but] nobody was picking up stones and all were crying loudly, especially the Nishapuris, so they paid silver [coins] to a bunch of thugs to throw stones, and [but] the man was already dead, as the hangman had put the rope on his neck and [had him] strangled.
