Psyche had learned her lesson and did as she was told. She gave one gold coin to the Charon, the ferryman, to carry her across the river Styx to the land of the dead. To the three-headed dog Cerberus who guarded the entrance to the Underworld, she gave the three honey cakes. Persephone agreed to fill the box with beauty. Psyche ate nothing and set about returning home, giving Cerberus the remaining honey cakes and Charon the last coin. When she returned to the land of the living, she thought to open the box so she might take some of Persephone's beauty so Cupid would love her. She opened the box slowly and fell down as if dead.
Cupid discovered her lying there and kissed the death from her lips. Cupid flew her to meet Zeus, who made Psyche immortal and she and Cupid were reunited forever.
