Mythology & Fiction Explained
Everyone seems to be asking what he does with all the money he earns, which is a good question I'd like to think he throws the coins in the river wishing for a new job or revenge on Heracles, you choose

The only Ferryman?! What about Phlegyas /from Dante's Inferno? Wasn't he also a Ferryman?
Comment from : Ed Watkins


Jan Laan
Just on the " only ferryman of the dead I know of" there are many, or just many versions of one depending on how you see itbrbrThe Greek and later Roman Charon one was based on the Egyptian KhertybrWhich was based on the sumarian ferryman UshanabibrbrBuddhist and Hindu tradition in India and japan also describes a river of the dead seperating the mortal from the underworld brbrGnöll is the Norse version of the river but instead of a ferryman there is a bridge with a guard/guidebrbrWeirdly, all of these versions describe a river seperating the world of the living from the dead

I remember the Orpheus story where he goes to the underworld to get the soul of his wife back and him and Charon about whether or not he'll take him to see Hades

I’m so grateful for this channel I didn’t know much about him other than the imagery surrounding the dead boatman type energies definitely always eager to know more and I really admire how you always add the appropriate languages and different dialects! Thank you

On the topic of Greek Mythology Odysseus and Ulysses are often the same person but are there any differences in the way they are portrayed?

Cosmonaut
Fitting to choose Secunda as the backing track since it is a moon of Nirn, and Charon is also a moon Pluto 🙂

1:23 I just learned from the recent Smokey Robinson greeting card pronunciation of Hanukah that went viral a couple of weeks ago that the traditional Hebrew spelling of Hanukkah is Chanukah He told someone Happy Sha-nook-ka while reading "Chanukah" I never knew until then that the Ch had a "H" sound as used in Hebrew I would have made the same mistake I wonder if a Christ like figure (saint) could also sound like "heist" man (thief) instead? :>)

A coin for the ferryman I have seen the coin placed on the tongue in Greece, and two coins over the eyes in Italy It is another custom that Christianity could not erase Thank god

Comment from : Majin Mike


Kermidiu
Personally, I don't get why he needs payment if all he ever does is row people around? What's he gonna buy? When does he have time to spend money? And where is he going to spend it?

FaZe_Buendia
I always preferred pronouncing it Kay-Ron, not only to distinguish from Chiron (k-eye-ron) but also because my little sister's name is Karyn brI'm a big Greek Mythology buff, have been for over 20 yrs, so Greek mythology names & terms come up in conversations way more than you'd think; and if I hear Charon pronounced like Karen, I think of my sister rather than the ferryman
Comment from : FaZe_Buendia


Vlad T
Hmm unkempt in appearance, eh? now I wonder if the 'Trainman' from the Matrix universe is a deliberate tip of the cap to this depiction of the old Ferryman (especially as he works for The Merovingian - who, given that he owns Club Hel with his wife Persephone, seems to be himself linked to Hades/Pluto)I actually thought Trainman might have been somehow referencing the 'Subway Ghost' (from the movie 'Ghost') in someway, but this now seems to read much better 🤔

Empresstwotails
I get confused between the welsh ocean God and his son (who I think is named after his father) but, if I understood correctly when I read about them years ago, the son is the boatman to their underworld Since you said you didn't know if another Maybe you know of several by now

Oh we have a version of that but it's a water goddess Magwayen who ferried the souls to sulad, most of the time the dead people who went to sulad are those who lacks gold or sacrifice pabaon
