    Mythology

    In ancient Greek mythology  wp, Acheron was known as the "river of woe", and was one of the five rivers of the Greek underworld  wp.  In the Homeric wp poems, the Acheron was described as a river of Hades, into which Cocytus  wp and Phlegethon  wp both flowed.

    The Roman poet Virgil  wp called it the principal river of Tartarus  wp, from which the Styx wp and Cocytus  wp both sprang.  The newly dead would be ferried across the Acheron by Charon in order to enter the Underworld.  The Suda  wp describes the river as "a place of healing, not a place of punishment, cleansing and purging the sins of humans".

    According to later traditions, Acheron had been a son of Helios  wp and either Gaia or Demeter, who had been turned into the Underworld river bearing his name after he refreshed the Titans wp with drink during their contest with Zeus  wp.  By this myth, Acheron is also the father of Ascalaphus wp by either Orphne  wp or Gorgyra  wp.

    The word is also occasionally used as a synecdoche  wp for Hades itself.

    Potamoi

    The river gods were the 3,000 sons of the great earth-encircling river Oceanus  wp and his wife Tethys wp and the brothers of the Oceanids  wp.  They were also the fathers of the Naiads wp.  The river gods were depicted in one of three forms: a man-headed bull, a bull-headed man with the body of a serpent-like fish from the waist down, or as a reclining man with an arm resting upon an amphora  wp jug pouring water.
