CASTOR AND POLLUX

The Twins

Also known as the Dioskouroi (‘sons of Zeus’), Castor and Pollux were the twin brothers of Helen and Clytemnestra. 

The brothers appear in several famous myths, including the Caledonian boar hunt and the legend of the Argonauts. They were protectors of sailors in trouble at sea, and were associated with horses and sports: Castor was known for his skill with horses, while Pollux was famous for his boxing skills.
