Castor and Pollux

Smith’s Bible Dictionary

“Castor and Pollux ” means

Castor and Pollux : (Acts 28:11) the twin sons of Jupiter and Leda, were regarded as the tutelary divinities of sailors; hence their image was often used as a figure-head for ships. They appeared in heaven as the constellation Gemini . In art they were sometimes represented simply as stars hovering over a ship.
