“The sea horse has been known and told in mythology since time immemorial and has always been very popular, it is a symbol of loyalty. In fact, it was customary to wear his image as a powerful amulet, and on the outer walls of many houses in Pompeii there are paintings that ward off bad luck. The hippocampus has always captured the imagination and attention of people, perhaps because of its special aspect that tastes like magic, a small fish and a small horse… in fact, for the Greek poets, seahorses became mythical half-horse creatures that the gods used to cross the seas and abyss.”
