One day, the king of Corinth was trying to figure out a way to solve his kingdoms water problem. A little while later Zeus had flown by with a river spirit in his arms. "That Zeus what a trouble maker," sighed the king. "What a trouble maker!"
"What a trouble maker!"
Sometime after he had seen Zeus fly by, the river-god came. "Have you seen my daughter?" he yelled at the king. "If you will give my city a source of water I will tell you what I saw." King Sisyphus called back. .
"I will only tell you if you give a fresh water source to our city."
"Have you seen where my daughter went?"
As soon as the king had responded a stream of water had bubbled up in front of him. "Zeus took her over that way," the king pointed the way he had seen Zeus go.
"Zeus took her that way!"
Once Zeus finds out what the king had done he knew he was going to be mad. And of course he was, as soon as he had found out he told the river-god where he went, he told Hades, Zeus' brother, to take him down into the underworld to see him.
So when he told his wife he said, "When they tell you im dead do not put a gold coin under my tongue." and the queen obeyed.
"Whatever you do not put a coin under my tongue."
So when he go to the underworld to see Hades he asked asked the king where his gold coin was, the king replied saying that his wife was too cheap to pay for it. Therefor, Hades resurrected the king and told him to teach his wife some manners. When he had got back, he told his wife what happened, but never shared his story with anyone else.
"Wheres your gold coin?"
"My wife was too cheap to spare a coin."
