Castor and Pollux have been called twin peacocks by the Arabs, twin sprouting plants by the Egyptians, and twin deities by the Hindus. From classic times the groups of stars have been known as the twins Castor and Pollux, sons of Jupiter and Leda. Castor raised exceptional horses, and Pollux was a warrior. The two joined the Argonauts on their search for the golden fleece, and joined the Roman soldiers in battles. The twins were also favorites of sailors. The effect known as St. Elmo's fire (the electrical charges seen around ships riggings in storms) was known as Ledean lights.
