Charon is the ferryman of the dead. The souls are brought to him by the god Hermes,then he transports them across the river Styx. He only accepts the dead that are buried and burned with the proper rites. And if they give him an obolus (coin) for there passage. Those who cannot afford passage,or are not admitted by Charon, are doomed to wonder the shores of the river Styx for a hundred years. Those who are alive and wish to go to the underworldneed a golden bough obtained from
the Cumaean Sibyl. He is the child of Erebus and Nyx.
