THE STORY

Psaria or Icthyes is the word for fish in the Greek language. 

Since ancient times, Greece, as a country surrounded by sea, has based its economy on the marine life and the practice of fishing. 

In ancient Greece the ichthys or ichthus (/ˈɪkθəs/), from the Greek ikhthýs,  is a symbol consisting of two intersecting arcs, the ends of the right side extending beyond the meeting point so as to resemble the profile of a fish. Now it is known colloquially as the "sign of the fish" or the "Jesus fish".

According to the Greek mythology ichtyes were two large Syrian river fish who rescued Aphrodite and Eros when they were fleeing the monster Typhoeus. Tradition has it though that the two gods disguised themselves as fish to escape the monster. The fish were also credited with assisting the birth of Aphrodite from the sea foam. 

In modern Greece fish and marine life are still considered to be a major factor of the economy. The Greeks include fish in their preferable weekly nutrition courses and, at the same time, fish taverns are connected with the Greek way of living.
