The first four medallions appearing below were created by Joseph Dillon Ford in April 2004 for display on the web pages of individuals who have received the Delian Society Golden Laurel Award. The design is based on Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, a large marble sculpted between 1622 and 1624 that is now housed at the Borghese Gallery in Rome.

The large gold medallion below, based on a sculpture of Apollo in the Louvre, was created by Joseph Dillon Ford to honor those composers and performers participating in the 2006 Delian Games. They are entitled to display it on their personal web pages.
The medallions below, based on the Apollo Belvedere housed at the Vatican, were created by Joseph Dillon Ford to honor those composers and performers participating in the 2007 Delian Games. They are entitled to display it on their personal web pages.
The two medallions shown below are reserved for the use of the Knights and Ladies of the Order of the Cynthian Palm, established in the year 2006 to honor those members of the Delian Society who have demonstrated outstanding support for its goals and objectives. The design is based on the image of a date palm (Phoenix spp.) that appears on the obverse of an Ephesian coin of the fourth century BCE. The date palm was sacred to Apollo because his mother, Leto, clung to such a tree on Mt. Cynthus at Delos during the God of Music's turbulent birth (as recounted in the Homeric "Hymn to Apollo" and other sources). In more recent history, the Delian palm was shown in Claude Lorraine's pictorial masterpiece, Landscape with Aeneas at Delos (1672), now housed at the National Gallery in London.
The medallion shown below was originally created exclusively for the use of the Delian Society Founders. It is now available for use by Regular Members. The design is based on a photographic image of the restored Apollo Belvedere, the original of which is now housed at the Vatican, and a photograph by Joseph Dillon Ford of the Greek Doric Temple at Segesta, Italy.
