History
Minoan Dolphin Fresco painted on the wall of the Queen's Hall in the Palace of Knossos in Crete. Dolphins appear in a number of Greek myths, invariably as helpers of humankind. Dolphins also seem to have been important to the Minoans, judging by artistic evidence from the ruined palace at Knossos. Dolphins were sacred to both Aphrodite and Apollo, also the messengers of Poseidon, Greek god of the sea, and sometimes did errands for him as well.
