A Wicked Wife’s Wisdom for a Final Solution: The Megillah in Depth, Chapter 5, Part 6

Seeking his wife’s sage, sensitive advice, Haman recounts his many achievements and personal triumphs, emphasising that none of it has any value as long as Persia’s most famous Jew exists – the immediate elimination of the impudent Jewish leader is absolutely necessary. The question is how? Deeply superstitious and wickedly wise, Haman’s diabolically conniving monster-mate Zerersh strategically analyzes the possibilities, reaching the conclusion that there is only one viable final solution – Mordechai must hang from a towering gallows by morning. A detailed plan is hatched; immediate action ensues as zero hour approaches.

50 Amos
Just to note; there is a published graduate book on the megillah explaining the archeology.

It states that the topography of the palace is 30 to 40 amos above the city; so they needed 50 for Haman to see mordechai from the palace. Reply
