I admit I had to look up gibbet. Never heard of the word

.A gibbet is a structure that's used to execute criminals by hanging them. The execution of someone on a gibbet is an old-fashioned practice. You can use the word gibbet to mean "gallows," or "public execution structure," and it can also be a verb, meaning to hang a person on one.

There is a scene in the Return of the King where Theoden is yelling at Sauruman on top of the Orthanc about gibbits
