Psyche (In Greek it means Nightingale "soul" or "butterfly"). In Greek mythology, is the personification of the soul, breath. The ancient Greeks imagined the souls of the dead in the form of a butterfly or a flying bird. Souls of the dead in Hades are portrayed flying, they are presented departing from the blood of the victims, fluttering in the form of shadows and phantoms. Souls of the dead ghosts swirl curl around Hecate, the ghost of Achilles at the siege of Troy, appears accompanied by a vortex.
