Castor and Pollux

Kastor and Polydeukes  do not play a very extensive part on vases; and as they are not further characterised than by the petasos and two spears, which are the ordinary equipment of young horsemen, they are not always to be identified with certainty, except in mythological scenes. Among these they appear in the Gigantomachia, or in company with Herakles are initiated into the lesser mysteries at Agra; they are also seen at the apotheosis of Herakles. They are present when Leda discovers the egg laid by Nemesis, and on two B.F. vases appear with Leda and Tyndareus in a family group; they are also seen in company with Hermes, with Paris and Helen, with Danaos taking refuge in Attica, in a scene from the Merope  of Euripides, and at the slaying of the Sphinx by Oedipus. They take part in the hunt of the Calydonian boar, and in many scenes from the Argonautika, such as the death of Talos, the punishment of Amykos, and others of doubtful meaning.There is more than one representation of their carrying off the Leukippidae, the best being the beautiful Meidias vase in the British Museum (Plate XLI.), where all the figures are named. They appear as hunters, as deified beings present at a Theoxenia (lectisternium ), or feast of the gods,and are crowned by Nike (with stars over their heads).
