From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rethymno (Greek: Ρέθυμνο, [ˈreθimno], also Rethimno, Rethymnon, Réthymnon, and Rhíthymnos) is a city of
approximately 40,000 people in Greece, the capital of Rethymno regional unit on the island of Crete.
It was built in antiquity (ancient Rhithymna and Arsinoe), but was never a competitive Minoan centre.
It was, however, strong enough to mint its own coins and maintain urban growth. One of these coins is
today depicted as the crest of the town with two dolphins in a circle.
