This painting involves the idea of the eternal soul. The title comes from a pre-Socratic document called the Petelia tablet, from the 4th-3rd Century BCE, which was found in excavations of a tomb near Petelia in southern Italy, and is now in the British Museum. It was written in Greek on a sheet of thin gold, rolled up and placed in a hexagonal cylinder on a delicate gold chain, and worn as an amulet by the deceased, to give protection and direction in the underworld.

You will find a spring on the left of the halls of Hades, and beside it a white cypress growing. Do not even go near this spring. And you will find another, from the Lake of Memory, flowing forth with cold water. In front of it are guards. You must say, 'I am the child of earth and starry heaven, but my race is of heaven (alone); this you yourselves also know. I am dry with thirst and am perishing. Come, give me at once cold water flowing forth from the Lake of Memory.' And they themselves will give you to drink from the divine spring, and thereafter you shall reign with the other heroes.
Ancilla to the Pre-Socratic Philosophers. Kathleen Freeman. Oxford. 1971.
