In Purgatory

Some groups are found together

Hell: The same is true

***

NOTE: In both Purgatory and Inferno, some groups are found together. For example, the prodigal and avaricious groups are found together. The avaricious overvalue money; the prodigal overvalue what money can buy. In Inferno, they oppose each other, but in Purgatory, they help each other purge their sin. Statius’s sin was prodigality: He overspent.
