Chthonic or khthonic (from Greek χθόνιος – chthonios, "in, under, or beneath the earth", from χθών – chthōn, "earth") designates, or pertains to, deities or spirits of the Underworld. It typically refers to the interior of the soil, rather than the living surface of the land (as Gaia does) or the land as territory (as khora (χώρα) does). It evokes at once abundance and the grave.
