As far as who Arion was, here is some info I found at http://www.stcloudstate.edu/~mnook/skyjune96.html
"Another Greek myth includes the mortal Arion, a harp player, who took an ocean voyage. The crew of the ship plotted against him, wanting to claim his wealth. Realizing this, Arion played his harp in praise of Apollo. Apollo was pleased, and when Arion was thrown overboard, he sent a dolphin to rescue him. Arion made a statue of the dolphin in thanks of it's bravery, and Apollo put the statue in the sky."
