In a Babylonian myth, two fishes found an enormous egg and took it safely to land. A dove then settled upon the egg until it hatched. Atargatis, a goddess, emerged from the egg and wanted to reward the two fishes. She provided them a place in the heavens as a constellation, their tails tied together which signifies their close bond. The dove was said to represent peace and also Aphrodite, the goddess of love whereas one of the fishes represents the mother, and the other, her son/child.
