Necromanteion the entrance to the underworld - Greece




Necromanteion in Greece, the temple of necromancy devoted to Hades, was regarded in mythology as the entrance to the underworld. The Necromanteion is located near the former muzzle of the Acheron river, which is silted up in the meantime. Large vessels and pantries show the donation willingness of visitors to appease the dead.

Mechanical devices for generating shadows of the dead in diffused light provided the necessary dramaturgy. Following the meeting, the visitors were bound to secrecy about all what was experienced.
