Similarly, the Titan Oceanus, the river that encircles the world beyond the sea, is called the father of all things in the Iliad.

Islands pepper the surface of the Ocean, but no continent is imagined to exist les personnages dantigone the encircling river, at least not in the Archaic or Classical period. Thus, when death is represented as a sea voyage les personnages dantigone the Ocean, it can lead either to the Underworld or to the Islands of the Blessed.
