Image of Fish

I have been looking everywhere for an image of the baptism of Christ on the bones/under the flesh of the fish ... that is what will be important to this article ... that is what would associate it with Peter and with Christ ... Vasiliki 07:01, December 16, 2008 (UTC)

Hi Vasikili :) Yes an image like that would be great, will have to look some more. However in the meantime I have another suggestion; I read the article in Greek, and I believe that it refers to a totally different species of fish altogether (it says Goulianos can reach 3-4 meters and go up to 200 kilos); for accuracy I propose that the article be renamed simply to Sarotherodon, which is the proper name for the genus of tilapiine cichlids or fishes that are endemic to Africa and Israel (and remove the reference to Goulianos, at least until it can be clarified).

Hi, I understand where you are coming from ... but the Scientific name is NOT the name used in Christian literature .... people refer to it as "Goulianos" and the purpose of the article is to support that name and fill in the blanks ... not the other way around ... hence why I propose you revert back to GOULIANOS ... remember this is meant to be Orthodox encyclopedia not Scientific ... the article you read is the only one I could find on the internet to support what I heard.

although I like ur clean up reads well :) Vasiliki 07:40, December 16, 2008 (UTC)
Interesting, in that case that disambiguation will have to be specified at the start of the article just as you have explained it above. (The link to the Greek article however still speaks about a totally different species of fish (not a Tilapia)). If as you say the common Chrisitan Greek reference of "Goulianos" refers to the "Sarotherodon"/"Tilapia" (genus of tilapiine cichlids or fishes that are endemic to Africa and Israel), then we will have to find at least some documentation to support the tradition.
