A detail of “The Beast Acheron” a medieval miniature made of tempera colors, gold leaf, gold paint, and ink on parchment.
In this miniature “The Beast Acheron,” attributed to french artist, Simon Marmion, Valenciennes, 1475, Tondal’s wandering soul observes the punishments meted out in Hell to the greedy. The illuminator has envisioned the entrance to Hell as the mouth of the beast Acheron, whose name derives from Greek mythology, referring to the river in Hades or Hell.
