Cas´tor and Pol´lux, in heathen mythology, the twin sons of Jupiter by Leda. They had the special province of assisting persons in danger of shipwreck; and hence their figures were often adopted for 'the sign,' from which a ship derived its name, as was the case with that 'ship of Alexandria' in which St. Paul sailed on his journey for Rome ().
