The Styx is a river in Greek mythology that formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld. The rivers Styx, Phlegethon, Acheron, and Cocytus all converge at the center of the underworld on a great marsh, which is also sometimes called the Styx. The important rivers of the underworld are Lethe, Eridanos, and Alpheus.

The River Styx supposedly separated the world of the living from the world of the dead. The deal was you had to cross the River Styx to reach life after death. There were many myths about the perils of crossing the River Styx. Unless they were punished by one of the gods to spend eternity in the underworld, no one expected to hang very long, only long enough to be reborn. So there was no sense in packing anything except a coin to pay for the ferry ride across the River Styx.

Charon or Kharon (In Greek mythology,)is the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and 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. 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.
