In Greek mythology, Charon or Kharon is the Ferryman in The Underworld who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron that divide 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 the dead person. 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.
