Since the beginning, there have been many views about the concept of death, how one deals with it and so on. Cremation Urns have been found in ancient burial cities. The Romans and Greeks believed that a proper funeral procedure and burial was essential for the path to the afterlife. One ceremonial procedure was to place a coin on the deceased’s mouth to represent an offering to the charon(ferryman in greek mythology) the being who carries the souls of the newly deceased across the rivers that divided the world of the living from that world of the dead.
