Acheron

"Virgil mentions Acheron with the other infernal rivers in his description of the underworld in Book VI of the Aeneid. In Book VII, line 312 he gives to Juno the famous saying, "flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo: 'If I cannot bend the will of Heaven, I shall move Hell.' " The same words were used by Sigmund Freud as the dedicatory motto for his seminal book "The Interpretation of Dreams", figuring Acheron as psychological underworld beneath the conscious mind."
