Ch. 16: To the Dioscouri

Of Castor and Polydeuces do thou sing,--shrill Muse, the Tyndaridae, sons of Olympian Zeus, whom Lady Leda bore beneath the crests of Taygetus, having been secretly conquered by the desire of Cronion of the dark clouds.

Hail, ye sons of Tyndarus, ye cavaliers of swift steeds.

Andrew Lang
