Let's See, Iridanos....

The river that runs through the Keramikos cemetery in Athens is called the Iridanos.  Sounds entirely unfunereal to me;  belongs in some kind of pastoral frolic:
By the banks of the River Iridanos,
In a manner not seldom forbidanos,
We disported ourselves
Midst the faeries and elves
Lascivious, lewd and libidanos.
