The constellation of Eridanus is named after the river Po in Italy, it is of Greek origin. Eridanus represents a celestial river and is usually depicted as flowing from the waters poured by Aquarius.
The constellation is associated in Greek mythos with the story of Phaeton, the son of the Sun-god Helios, and the Oceanid Clymene. Phaeton wished to drive his father’s chariot across the heavens and kept begging for his permission to do so.
Helios agreed, however, he advised his son to follow the beaten track where he saw wheel marks. Phaeton mounted the chariot and the horses, sensing that the driver was lighter, flew upwards into the sky, leaving the familiar track behind.
Since he lacked experience, the reins slipped from his hands, and the chariot plunged close to the Earth, and the lands caught fire. Some say that this was how Libya became a desert, Ethiopians got dark skin, and the seas dried up.
