  Chthonic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Greek khthon is one of several words for "earth"; it typically refers to the interior of the soil, rather than the living surface of the land (as does gaia or ge) or the land as territory (as does khora).
Chthonic deities also tended to favor fl victims over white ones, and their offerings were usually burned whole or buried rather than being cooked and shared among the worshippers.
While chthonic gods and goddesses had a general association with fertility, they did not have a monopoly on it, nor were Olympian gods wholly unconcerned from the earth's prosperity.

 The Chthonic Plane
These three grades of biological consciousness could be defined as lower, middle, and upper chthonic (remember, each plane is also divided into sub-planes, so there are actually many chthonic planes), and constitute the somatic subconscious (nefesh of nefesh).

 Fantasy Cosmogony 101 | Gamegrene.com
Chthonic traditions are usually defined as the ancient, pre-Aryan (or pre-Olympian) religions of the Mediterranean.
Other chthonic divinities include the tripartite goddesses (the Fates in their benevolent aspect, the Eryines ["Furies"] or Eumenides in their punitive aspect, and the feminine trinity in their mystical, moon-based aspect [Selene/Kore/Persephone, Rhea/Demeter, and Hecate]).
Unless I am very badly misinformed, the Chthonic traditions (along with imported Sumerian/Babylonian myth and ritual) formed the basis of European "magical theory," starting with the Greco-Roman practices of "magic" and continuing in fits, starts, and "eras of rediscovery" into the Middle Ages and even the modern day.
