This intelligent and human-friendly mammal of the sea has long attracted interest in the Mediterranean area. A dolphin is said to have saved the Greek bard Arion and brought him to the shore after a shipwreck. In mythology, Apollo is said to have assumed the form of a dolphin to carry Cretans to Delphi, where they built a temple to him. The name Apollo Delphinius (Lord of the Dolphins) may mean that in Minoan Crete Apollo was honored with the symbol of a dolphin. It is not clear whether the name Delphi derives from this connection. Otherwise, the dolphin was an attribute of the sea-god Poseidon, and a dolphin is said to have matched him with his wife Amphitrite. Another attribute of Poseidon was the HORSE, images of dolphins were used at racetracks as counters to show how many circuits had been run. Dionysus, the god of drunken ecstasy, supposedly turned pirates into dolphins. Aphrodite (Latin VENUS), who was born from the sea-foam, is frequently portrayed with dolphins. In Etruscan burial art, dolphins often bear the souls of the dead to the ISLANDS OF THE BLESSED only in later times did a darker conception of the AFTERLIFE (on the order of Hades) come to prevail. In heraldry the dolphin appears covered with fish-scales, in the arms of Dauphine (France), for example. The crown prince of France bore dolphins in his personal coat of arms (and was thus called dauphin). The note ad usum delphini (for the use of the crown prince) in books means that they are expurgated editions morally suitable for younger readers.
