Figurehead

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
An emblem on the prow of a ship (Acts 28:11 NIV, NRSV, NAS). The figure (“sign” KJV) in Acts is the Twin Brothers Castor and Pollow, sons of Zeus and Leda, identified with the constellation Gemini. Sight of the constellation was a good omen in bad weather. Thus the figurehead was something of a good luck charm.
