The death penalty in the years of Capodistrias (supplement)

The author adds additional information to a previous article in issue 11 of the Archaeologia journal. He writes of two cases of capital punishment under the government of Capodistrias that he read of in the General Archives of State .In the first case (in 1830), it seems that the government played a decisive role in the execution which was meant to play the role of an exemplary punishment. In the second case of capital punishment, (in 1831), it is not clear whether it was a case of enforcement of the law of the times or whether the penalty actually imposed by the court was altered. In the Ottoman Archive of the General Archives of State, it seems that Hasan Arnaout, executioner, was employed in 1833 before the guillotine had been introduced to Greece. He was paid a salary of 100 drachmas a month.
