Day #6 - Blue Delphia


Today, Ian's body was cremated. This is the urn that we picked out for him. It is called the "Blue Delphia" keepsake. "Delphia" has multiple meanings, and is used both as a word to describe any female native to the town of Delphi, or as the word for "brotherly” or “friendly."

The town of Delphi was revered throughout the Greek world as the centre of the earth and the universe. In the inner hearth of the Temple of Apollo, an eternal flame burned. After the battle of Plataea, the Greek cities extinguished their fires and brought new fire from the hearth of Delphi.

Delphia – city of friendship, city of the eternal flame.
