The Underworld encompassed the whole Afterlife, containing both heaven and hell, where the righteous could be lavished upon, and the unworthy punished. Hades is divided into two main sections: Erebus and Tartarus. Erebus is where the dead first enter the underworld. Charon ferries the dead across the river Acheron where they then enter into Tartarus. Tartarus is the section of the underworld where the dead spend all of eternity in the place where judgment would order them. Tartarus is then divided into two subsections: the Elysian Fields and the Asphodel Meadows. The Elysian Fields are for souls to be forever happy, spending eternity of pleasure, free from work and strife. The Asphodel Meadows is the region of the Underworld where the majority of the deceased will end up, for it is the region of indifference, where those who had lived neither an overly good nor an overly bad life would end up. Having drunk from the River Lethe, the deceased located here would forget their previous lives, but would spend eternity in a greyness of mindlessness. It is described as a ghostly place that is an even less perfect version of life on earth.
