Fields of Asphodel  (ASS-fuh-del)

Dwelling place of most of the shades in Hades according to Homer, the bard who sang of the age of heroes. Asphodel was an ugly weed with a pretty name, a grey and ghostly plant suited to an Underworld inhabited by bloodless wraiths.
The Fields of Asphodel lay within the dominion of Hades, ruler of the dead. (zoom)
