Basanos

Basanos (altgriechisch βάσανος), auch Sklavenfolter genannt, war zur Zeit der attischen Demokratie sehr verbreitet, jedoch nur selten angewendet.

Im Rechtsstreit in Athen, dem Agon, galt es als juristischer Schachzug, der Gegenseite die Proklesis zu stellen. Man drohte somit der Gegenpartei, man werde zu Wahrheitsfindung die Sklaven des Angeklagten foltern lassen. Begründet durch das Bild, welches der attische Bürger zu jener Zeit vom Sklaven hatte, galt das Wort eines Dieners nichts. Folterte man ihn allerdings, so stieg die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass er die Wahrheit sagte, mit der jeweiligen Folterintensität.
