Artist's Description

In Greek mythology, Charon or Kharon (pronounced /ˈke(ə)rən/; Greek Χάρων) was the ferryman of Hades who carried souls of the newly deceased across the River Acheron that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. A coin to pay Charon for passage, usually an obolus or danake, was sometimes placed in or on the mouth of a dead person.1 Some authors say that those who could not pay the fee, or those whose bodies were left unburied, had to wander the shores for one hundred years. In the catabasis mytheme, heroes — such as Heracles, Orpheus, Aeneas, Dionysus and Psyche — journey to the underworld and return, still alive, conveyed by the boat of Charon.
