Vergil, Aeneid 6.325-8

This great host you see are the unfortunate and unburied; that is the ferryman Charon; and those, whom the wave carries, the inhumed. Nor is it permitted to cross the horrific shores and raucous flows before one’s bones have rested in their place”

haec omnis, quam cernis, inops inhumataque turba est;
portitor ille Charon; hi, quos uehit unda, sepulti.
nec ripas datur horrendas et rauca fluenta
transportare prius quam sedibus ossa quierunt.

Publius Vergilius Maro
