In the history of the ancient world, water plays an important role as the quickest way to move from one site to the other, for religious reasons, as a way to reach the Otherworld. This last aspect is analysed in the paper starting from Mycenaean larnakes, passing through Oriental myth, Greek ways of death, arriving in Villanovan Italy and Sardinia from Iron Age. It becomes a long journey following the idea of Okeanos as the limit between our world and the Other one, the navigation toward the unknown, the Otherworld of Orientalizing and Archaic phases in Etruria with the painted tombs.
