The Styx was the principal river of the underworld, which had to be crossed to pass to the regions of the dead. The Roman Underworld was the classical equivalent to hell and called by the name of Hades, it was the mythological place of departed souls. Hades was ruled by the Roman God Pluto (the name of the equivalent Greek god was Hades) who was also revered as the god of the dead. The role of Charon the boat was to ferry the dead across the river Styx to the entrance of Hades however he expected to be paid for his work. A coin for his payment was therefore placed on or in the mouth of the dead person.
