  Arion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arion was a legendary poet and citharode in ancient Greece (originally of Lesbos) who lived in the court of Periander, tyrant of Corinth, Greece.
Arion was given the choice of "suicide" with a proper burial on land, or being thrown in the sea to perish.
At the end of the song Arion threw himself in the sea rather than be killed, but one of the dolphins saved his life and carried him to safety at Cape Taenarum.

 Arion 2, Greek Mythology Link.
Arion 2, who lived in Corinth when this city was ruled by King Periander (625-585 BC), was the best citharist or lyre-player of his time, coming originally from Methymna, a city in the island of Lesbos.
When the song was over, Arion 2 threw himself into the sea with his lyre and all his equipment, and while the ship sailed back to Corinth holding on the same course, he was taken on the back of a dolphin which bore him to Taenarum in Laconia.
Many thoughts came to Arion 2's mind, according to his own account, while he was being carried by the dolphins through a sea without a wave and under a sky dotted with stars; for he remembered the gods, the many eyes of Justice, and a few other things that are usually remembered on such circumstances.
