Cas'tor and Pol'lux. 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.
