In Greek mythology, Charon or Kharon (/ˈkɛərɒn/ or /ˈkɛərən/; Greek Χάρων) 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.
The obol (ancient Greek: ὀβολός obolos, literally "spit, iron rod" plural: ὀβολοί oboloí; hence also obolus, obolos) was an ancient silver coin. In Classical Athens, there were six obols to the drachma
