Stairway to the River Styx Picture

According to Greek mythology this is the stairway we all have to use one day as we proceed to the River Styx and Charon the ferryman who will take us across that river in his boat to the Underworld, Hades.

Be sure you take a coin with you to pay your way, as he will not ferry you to the other side. Otherwise you will have to wander aimlessly in a land of despair, as there is no return from the Underworld.

No doubt most of you will know of the legend and if not I have included a couple of links giving details.
