The ancient Greeks believed that the realm of the dead is divided from the world of the living only by a dark-watered river. Charon the ferryman would transport the dead souls across the river for a fee, and so a golden coin was placed into the mouths of the dead to pay the passage. Nowadays, this is a more luxurious experience designed for those longing for death, but afraid to act.
