- In William Shakespeares' tragedy Julius Caesar, the word Lethe is mentioned in a sidenote with the meaning "a river of the underworld." It is, in fact, a river in Greek mythology, located in Hades. It is said that all who drink from the river experience complete forgetfulness. "Lethe" derives from Greek word "Λήθη" which can be used to mean lethargy (gr.λήθαργος), forgetfulness or oblivion.
- Uniquely, the Limia River in Spain was said to have the same memory-erasing properites of the weapon Lethe.
