In church death records I recently found odd remarks. In the Diocese of Gurk (Carinthia, Austria) in Malta in 1722 in several entries there is the term nauli morte or morte nauli. Example for a full entry:
Xbris 28 Joannes fil. legit. Christiani Faschauner Rus. am Maltaperg iad. 2 me[n]sium. nauli morte.
I'm not proficient in Latin, so my interpretation could be wrong. nauli could be a form of naulum which means a fare or passage money. More specifically it could be related to the custom of Charon's obol where a coin was placed under the tongue of the deceased so that they could pay Charon for transporting them across the river Styx.
I would find this strange in several ways as this custom builds upon ancient Greek mythology, which was then adopted by Romans but I wouldn't expect to find this with Christian funerals and so late in the 18. century.
Would the custom of Charon's obol still be practised in Christian funerals in the 18. century? More specifically in the area of the Diocese of Gurk, but I'm also glad for examples of other areas where this was customary. Wikipedia hints at this being popular in Britain (see section Among Christians in the Charon's obol article, citing L. V. Grinsell, "The Ferryman and His Fee" in Folklore 68 (1957), pp. 265 and 268.).
