The symbol given to this sign is that of a water carrier. The water carrier particularly represents a charming Phrygian youth called Ganymede. He was the son of the king of Troy who was called Tros of Dardania.

According to the Greek mythology, one day while Ganymede was taking care of his father’s sheep on Mount Ida, he was spotted by the king of Gods, Zeus.

The Sumero-Babylonian name of this sign is “the great one”.
