Salve! My name is Aelia. I was an empress in the Roman Empire. This is my journey through the Underworld!
I was murdered with poison while dining with a rival family in attempt to bring peace. While I lay unconscious, dying, their pet dog attacked me.
When my body was found dead lying in the dining room by a young slave boy, he immediately ran to get my family. My body was moved swiftly onto a cushioned bed. My husband, the emperor, knelt to collect my final breath. Then he called my name three times as my final call to make sure I was dead.
My family placed a coin under my tongue to pay Charon After, I was cremated. Then a large funeral procession and gathering took place, filled with whalers, games and food. My family buried me outside of the city and showered my grave with flowers and gifts. They then called my name three times.
Now that I have passed, I am a relaxed . Mercury comes to take me to the Underworld. We come to the river Styx where Charon awaits us. I give him my coin and we cross the river Styx. I hear screams and chains. I smell sulfur and smoke coming from Tarturus.
Charon drops me off at the Gates of Pluto where I see Cerberus guarding the gates. A group of monsters hang around the gate as I passed through. Including the Furies.
