Referring to recent previous postings.
From the BBC News today we read that :
Colonies of rare seahorses are living and breeding in the River Thames, conservationists have revealed.
Experts at London Zoo said the species had been found at Dagenham in east London and Tilbury and Southend in Essex, over the last 18 months.The revelation coincided with new laws which came into force on Sunday to give the creatures protected status.
Seahorses are from the genus Hippocampus which comes from the Greek words hippos and campus meaning horse and sea monster respectively; although the history goes back further, to at least Phoenician times.
Wikipedia entry for Hippocamp
The hippocamp or hippocampus (plural: hippocampi)(Greek: ἵπποκαμπος, from ἵππος, "horse" and κάμπος , "monster"), often called a sea-horse in English, is a mythological creature shared by Phoenician and Greek mythology, "Homer described Poseidon, who was god of horses (Poseidon Hippios) as well as of the sea, drawn by "brazen-hoofed" horses over the sea's surface"
"The mythic hippocamp has been used as a heraldic charge, particularly since the Renaissance, most often in the armorial bearings of people and places with maritime associations"
The Sun-day of revelation referred to above being yesterday, the same Sun-day that the Olympic torch visited London, one of the 22 cities that the torch will visit on it's global tour. Today it has moved to Paris, just in time for the Diana inquest verdict it seems.
These sea horses', like the "mythical" creatures that pulled Poseidon's chariot, also ferry a living "god" behind them.
Diana's son, him of Biblical Revelation.
