THE QUEEN OF THE DOLPHINS
This commemorative stamp from the Delphys Postal Administration
shows Persephone XIth, the Queen of the Dolphins, noble Empress
of the Empire of Delphys. The stamp was issued in 2001 to hallmark
the 1000th anniversary of her birth.
She was famous for bringing peace to the various tribes of fish that
live off the shores of the Isle of Abaton, the main island in the Delphys
Archipelago. (See the map of Delphys on my post of January 18,
Among the fish who revere the memory of Persephone XIth are the
Blue Hatted Cadfish, the Pink Puffer, and the Blue Spotted Bo Fish
(an ocean-going Dolphin related to the River Dolphins of Brazil).
