Christian symbol signifying the swiftness with which Christians should seek Christ; also tenderness of conjugal love. The favorite representation is two dolphins tending towards some emblem of Christ, such as an anchor and cross. It is usually the emblem of the disciple rather than Christ. It may also refer to a saint with an association with the sea such as Saint Martinian the Hermit.
