 Lethe is a river of the Greek underworld that grants forgetfulness to those who drink from it. Spirits of the dead would drink its waters in order to let go of their earthly lives. In the Roman epic The Aeneid, souls of the dead must drink from Lethe before they can be reincarnated back into the world.
