Greek Mythology Question - My brain is broke!

There are Three "Layers" to Hades...

1.) The Elysian Fields - Where the Heros and the Blessed go.
2.) Tartarus - The equivalent of Hell - Where the Damned go.
3.) _______ - Where the average man goes.

What the hell is the name of the third level? Or actually the middle level, where the average every day guy goes??

My pregnancy brain just isn't allowing me to access this knowledge today... And it's KILLING me cause I know I know it!

  • No, Hades was the name for the entire underworld... And the God that ruled it...

    My head is really killing me at this point....

  • Asphodel Meadows ?

     "where the souls of people who lived lives of near equal good and evil rested. It essentially was a plain of Asphodel flowers, which were the favorite food of the Greek dead. It is described as a ghostly place that is an even less perfect version of life on earth."
