Ac 5:18 Put them in the common prison. In the city jail, among malefactors. Van Lenneps says: ``The "common prison", corresponding to our jail, consists of a single room in the governor's cellar, with a floor of earth, and one small window, where all manner of people, from the murderer to the insolent debtor, are promiscuously crowded together. The only furniture consists of a bench, always occupied by the strongest; the rest lie on the floor, or stand. We have visited prisons of this kind where we could only stand a few moments upon the threshold on account of the foul air. The keepers remain outside of the door (Ac 5:23), but the prisoners are not bound.''
