Case Description: Complainant (Psyche) accuses defendant (Persephone) of giving her a box filled with sleep. When Psyche came to the Underworld to ask Persephone for a sample of her beauty, Persephone gave her a box of sleep.

Case Status: Case closed. Persephone warned Psyche not to open it, and Psyche failed the test. Everything's resolved now anyway: Psyche is immortal and married to Cupid, so everyone's happy. Much more on this case in "Cupid and Psyche."
