A certain miser died, and after being buried came to the banks of
the river, over which the shades of the departed were ferried.
When the ferryman saw the miser, he demanded his fare. But the
miser, true to his nature, rather than then pay it, threw himself into
the river and swam over to the other side, in spite of the clamour
and opposition that arose. All the lower regions were in an uproar
and each of the judge, of the dead were suggesting some
punishment suitable to the crime of the miser. One said he should
be chained to a rock, as” A”, who was being tortured for helping
mankind. Another said that he should be condemned to eternal
punishment in hell like” B”, who had to fill a sieve with water. And
the third advised that he should suffer the same punishment as” C”,
who had to push a large rock at the top of the hill, from which it
always rolled down to the plains again . But the supreme judge said
that they must invent some severe punishment for the miser. And
he decreed that the miser should be sent back to earth, to see the
use of his heirs were making of his riches.
