A bit of divine comedy as well.

Leviathan was also known as the demon of envy, hence the story of the jealous younger brother.

Cerberus guards the circle of gluttony, while the man was no glutton, his town was filled with the rotting corpse of the dead. And the circle of gluttony is said to be filled with the murk of all things filthy and disgusting. Alternatively, Cerberus was originally the guard of Hades, and so it could also be viewed that his town is now the 'realm of the dead'.
