That obol has Athena's sacred owl on it, so it's obviously from Athens. I don't know if you could get a hotdog for it (if the ancient Greeks had something similar to hotdogs), but I have read that you actually could get a cheap prostitute.
i just imagined a turf war btw ancient greek bordellos and hot dog vendors lol
Sounds epic. XD
That sounds like a VERY cheap prostitute!
Underscores the value of metal in an Early Iron Age culture.
Oh, what the ghost is saying sounds VERY sad
Oh my :-(
Hermes is totally legit for being a psychopomp but I kinda wonder where Thanatos is. Hopefully not in Sisiphus' trunk.
I've always had some problems to include Thanatos in my comics since he is the personification of death, and I don't want death to be a person. Death just is. So he might be some kind of psychopomp like Hermes, but someone who takes care of the more difficult cases? He maybe will make an appearance in Queen of the Dead, the comic I'm currently working on.
In my mind Thanatos is always THE psychopomp, and perhaps someone who channels death into beings (if we take the super magical route) but I can see what you mean! Looking forward to it!
