"These comments jogged my brain into another question.
At first I believe Ra's (and whoever) would use the pit while still alive to regain youth and strength. I don't believe it would work on a dead body. Later they apparently changed this."
"I could have sworn that originally, there was only one Lazarus Pit, its location known only to Ra's, and he'd been using it repeatedly over the years/centuries, but not too often. Over time, additional Pits started popping up in various…"
"When I read the original story I assumed the Pit only worked for Ra's. At that stage I think there was only one.
