As a symbol of the Olympian gods, it had a special place in ancient art, as a decorative motif. There are two dolphins that adorn the lovely mural in "Akrotiri" in Thera.The mural of dolphins, found in the Queen's Hall in Palace of Knossos, is a very famous monument of the Minoan culture.

Dolphins were depicted on vases combined with deities. There were also depicted in ancient coins. The most famous coin was the silver coin of Delphi, that depicted four dolphins.

Many writers, poets, musicians and artists in general praised the dolphins. Many myths were referred to dolphins. The most well known myth, is the one of the captivity of Dionysus by Tyrrhenian pirates.
