Styx Picture

In Greek mythology, the "River Styx" (Greek: Στύξ also meaning hate, detest) was a river which formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld (often called Hades which is also the name of this domain's ruler). It circles the Underworld nine times. The rivers Styx, Phlegethon, Acheron and Cocytus all converge at the center of the underworld on a great marsh. The other important rivers of the underworld are Lethe and Eridanos, and Alpheus, a real river that runs in Italy partially underground and undersea. Married couples would throw rings into the river to appease the gods of marriage, Hades and Persephone, as it was believed to be one of the few mortal portals to the underworld. In other versions, Phlegyas guarded Phlegethon, one of the other main rivers of the underworld. Sometimes the ferryman was called Charon (also spelt Kharon in older texts).
