What does Matthew 27:30 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Matthew 27:30

And they spit upon him
The Syriac and Persic versions add, "upon his face", which he did not hide from spitting; see ( Isaiah 1:6 ) , and so what with sweat, by being hurried from place to place, and with blood trickling down from his temples, scratched with thorns, and with the spittle of these filthy soldiers, his visage was more marred than any man's, and his form than the sons of men, ( Isaiah 52:14 ) .

And took the reed,
or "cane", which was put into his right hand,

and smote him on the head;
whereby they drove the sharp points of the thorns into it, which must give him inexpressible pain and torture.
