Pollux, also known as Polydeuces in Greek mythology, was one half of Dioscuri with his twin brother Castor. His mother was the princess Leda, whom he shared with Castor. Pollux and Castor had different fathers, though. Castor was the son of King Tyndareus of Sparta, Leda’s husband. Pollux, though, was the son of Zeus, who disguised himself as a swan in order to seduce Leda, making Pollux a demigod, unlike his human brother. In some versions of the myth, the brothers are both mortal. In other versions of the myth, Pollux and his twin brother were hatched from an egg, like their sisters Helen and Clymenestra. In some images, the twins are shown wearing skull caps, which are thought the be the egg shells from which they hatched.

In most Greek mythology, Pollux features alongside his brother. Pollux and Castor fought alongside Jason in his search for the Golden Fleece. They also helped Jason to bring down the city of Ioclus to punish King Pelias for his treason. The brothers helped to hunt the Calydonian Boar. When Theseus, the king of Attica, kidnapped their sister Helen, the brothers rescued her and kidnapped Theseus’s mother, forcing her to become Helen’s slave as an act of revenge.

Pollux and Castor fell in love with a set of sisters who were already involved with their cousins. The twins kidnapped the girls and returned to Sparta, which caused problems within the family. The cousins retaliated by stealing some of the family’s cattle. When Pollux and Castor followed to get their cattle back, they took their sister Helen with them. Helen met Paris, they fell in love and sparked off the Trojan War. Pollux and Castor’s cousins discovered they were trying to steal the cattle back. Castor was wounded and killed while Pollux was saved when his father, Zeus, threw a thunderbolt at the cousin trying to kill Pollux.

Pollux was heartbroken without his brother. As a demigod, he was immortal, but he begged his father to give half of his immortality to Castor. Zeus granted the request and the twins were turned into the constellation known as Gemini, one of the major constellations of astrology. As the Gemini, they were able to move between Olympus, the home of the gods and goddesses, and Hades, the underworld.

In mythology, Pollux and his brother Castor were the gods of sailing and horsemanship. The brothers would appear to sailors in the form of St. Elmo’s Fire, which is an electrical discharge that resembles fire and could sometimes be seen on the mast of a ship before or after a storm. The brothers were the gods of horsemanship because they were sometimes seen riding the ocean waves as one would ride a horse. Pollux and Castor were also known for their boxing abilities, and were thus the gods of athletes and athletic competitions.

In both art and literature, Pollux and his brother were shown with horses, as the two were famed horsemen. They were also often shown with various symbols of twinhood, such as wood put together at crossbeams, two vases, two shields or two snakes.

Both the Greeks and the Romans worshipped Pollux and Castor. They were particularly popular in Sparta, where they were said to be born. The Spartans even had a tradition of having two princes in honor of the brothers. Castor and Pollux were also favored in Rome, where there was a temple built to the twins. In fact, the twins were so favored by the Greeks and the Romans that they were often invited into their homes as people would lay out tables of food for them.

Southern Pacific SW1500

The SW1500's came in 12 orders, with deliveries starting in 1967 through to 1973. Of those 12 orders, 3 went to Cotton Belt. With this long a production time, there were detail differences in types of headlights fitted, and the early models came with sheet metal 'gussets' between the stepwell and the bottom of the walkway.

All were delivered in scarlet and gray paint, and stayed that way until 1985, when two were painted into the SPSF Merger scheme using two different variations. 2539 had a yellow cab, 2575 had a red cab. However end road number placement varied over the years, some not even having the small versions at either end. Some went that long between repaints, that the Scotchlite™ wore off, revealing the red primer, hence the red lettered units 2466 being one. The introduction of Speed Lettering after the buyout by DRGW saw a few painted that way. See the B-List for Speed Lettered SW1500's.

One notable early retirement was 2451, wrecked in Tucson in 1978.

In service modifications seem to be few initially, limited to the pilot being cut back to accomodate an AAR type pin lifter, and the removal of the full length grab iron and/or the pilot steps and/or the MU hose boxes, photo's show a few variations.

Later modifications included the removal of the marker lights and signal lights, with varying degrees bodywork done. Some had the openings plated over, others were left with holes.
Along with the removal of lights, some received rotating beacons, placement of which varied considerably, photo's show centered on the back of the cab roof, offset to the left side at the back on some units and at the front on others.

Dioscuri, also called (in French) Castor and Polydeuces and (in Latin) Castor and Pollux, (Dioscuri from Greek Dioskouroi, “Sons of Zeus”), in Greek and Roman mythology, twin deities who succoured shipwrecked sailors and received sacrifices for favourable winds. They were the children of Leda and either Zeus, the king of the gods, or Tyndareus, Leda’s mortal husband and the king of Lacedaemon. According to the usual version, Castor was the son of Tyndareus and thus was mortal, while Pollux was the son of Zeus (who famously had approached Leda in the form of a swan).

Both brothers were fine horsemen, and Pollux was an unrivaled boxer. They took part in the hunting of the Calydonian boar (see Meleager) and in the voyage of the Argo (see Argonaut). When their sister Helen was abducted by Theseus, they invaded Attica and recovered her. They carried off the daughters of Leucippus, Phoebe and Hileira, and were confronted by Leucippus’s nephews, Idas and Lynceus. Castor was murdered by Idas, but Pollux killed Lynceus in retribution Zeus killed Idas with a thunderbolt. Zeus then gave Pollux the choice between spending all his time on Olympus or giving half of his immortality to his mortal brother, so that they could alternate realms together. Pollux elected to share his immortality. In one version of the story, they became the constellation Gemini (though several different pairs are associated with the constellation).

The introduction of their cult at Rome goes back traditionally to 484 bc . The building of their temple in the Forum followed a vow of Aulus Postumius at the battle of Lake Regillus, where, according to legend, the Dioscuri fought on the side of the Romans and carried the news of victory to Rome. As horsemen, they were especially attractive to the Roman equites, the equestrian order or knights, and to the cavalry. In art the twins are represented as two youths, usually horsemen, holding spears and wearing helmets their image appeared on early Roman coins.

The astrological influences of the constellation Gemini

Legend: The constellation represents Castor and Pollux, the twin sons of Leda and Jupiter. It has also been suggested that it may represent Apollo and Hercules. [Robson , p.45.]

Influences: Ptolemy makes the following observations the stars in the feet of Gemini have an influence similar to that of Mercury, and moderately to that of Venus the bright stars in the thighs are like Saturn. It is said to cause trouble and disgrace, sickness, loss of fortune, affliction and danger to the knees. By the Cabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Qoph and the 19 th Tarot Trump, The Sun”. [Robson , p.46.]

The astrological influences of the constellation Gemini given by Manilius:

“The arms to shoulders joined are accounted to the Twins” [Manilius, p.119]

“From the Twins come less laborious callings and a more agreeable way of life, provided by varied song and voices of harmonious tone, slender pipes, the melodies inborn in strings and the words fitted thereto: those so endowed find even work a pleasure. They would banish the arms of war, the trumpet’s call, and the gloom of old age: theirs is a life of ease and unfading youth spent in the arms of love. They also discover paths to the skies, complete a survey of the heavens with numbers and measurements, and outstrip the flight of the stars: nature yields to their genius, which it serves in all things. So many are the accomplishments of which the Twins are fruitful.” [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD. p.281.]

The astrological influences of the star Pollux

According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Mars and, to Alvidas, of the Moon, Mars and Uranus. It gives a subtle, crafty, spirited, brave, audacious, cruel and rash nature, a love of boxing, dignified malevolence, and is connected with poisons. [Robson , p.185-186.]

Pollux has a strong Martian nature and has the name ‘the wicked boy’ of the of the sibling Twins. According to its nature, this star is brutal and tyrannical, violent and cruel if in conjunction with the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, MC or with malefics. Just as Mars has its good sides if the energy it creates is channeled constructively, so Pollux should not always be considered as unhelpful. The star badly place could manifest that way, not by the native misusing his energy but by others deceiving him and fate playing him some cruel tricks. Helper if in peril on voyages at sea. [Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.41.]

It can show aptitude for getting into quarrels, but it also denotes a power of penetration on the mental plane. [The Living Stars, Dr. Eric Morse, p.44.]

If Rising: Bad eyes, blindness, injuries to the face, sickness, wounds (can be operations nowadays), imprisonment, ephemeral honor and preferment. [Robson , p.186.]

If culminating: Honor and preferment but danger of disgrace and ruin. [Robson , p.186.]

With Sun: Occult and theosophical interests, blows, stabs, serious accidents, shooting, shipwreck, murderer or murdered, extreme sickness and diseases, fevers, ailments affecting the stomach, evil disposition (used to be a term in astrology for homosexuality), riches and honor but final ruin, blindness, injuries to head and face, quarrels, rape committed or suffered, banishment, imprisonment for embezzling, violent death, decapitation. [Robson , p.186.]

With Moon: Hatred of the vulgar, ill-will of women, danger from thieves, violent death, power, pride, sickness, calamity, wounds, imprisonment, injuries to face, defective sight or blindness especially if Mars or the Sun be in square from Aries. If Mars or the Sun be in square from Libra, danger of accidents and legal or matrimonial troubles but, if in opposition from Capricorn, danger to the mother’s honor and reputation. If Mars be in conjunction, death by suffocation, drowning or assassination. If Mars be with Arcturus in the 1st or 7 th , 9 th , 10 th , 11 th , houses, death by suffocation. [Robson , p.186.]

With Mercury: Unbalanced mind, unpopular and peculiar occupation, trouble with father through relatives or enemies, domestic disharmony, anxiety, loss through land, property and mines. [Robson , p.186.]

With Venus: Strong and irregulated passions, danger of seduction if female, loss through women, danger of poison. [Robson , p.187.]

With Mars: Violent, murderer or murdered, high position but final ruin, violent death by suffocation, drowning or assassination especially if the Moon be there also. [Robson , p.187.]

With Jupiter: Legal losses, high position but danger of disgrace, trouble through relatives, banishment or imprisonment. [Robson , p.187.]

With Saturn: Bad temper, bitter, sarcastic, loss of arm or leg, loss of parents or trouble through step-parents, much help from a friend, lack of education, sudden death while following occupation through horses or large animals. [Robson , p.187.]

With Uranus: Occult interests, psychic ability, selfish, proud, vain of person and appearance, success in connection with the Government, companies or electrical matters, harmonious marriage in middle age, favorable for children, end of life not so favorable as middle. [Robson , p.187.]

With Neptune: Changeable, many travels, excellent linguist, many influential friends, good for partnership, peculiar conditions in marriage and partner often a foreigner, occupation connected with exploration or zoological and botanical work abroad, minor accidents, isolated death through fever or virulent disease. [Robson , p.187.]

St. Elmo's Fire

St. Elmo's fire is a natural phenomenon that occurs during certain stormy weather conditions. It appears as a glow on the top of tall pointed objects, such as the masts of ships, and is often accompanied by a cracking noise. When stars appeared on the heads of Castor and Pollux during the voyage of the Argonauts, the twins became known as the protectors of sailors. From that time, sailors believed that St. Elmo's fire was actually Castor and Pollux coming to protect them during a storm.

In another version of this story, the four men conducted a cattle raid together. Idas and Lynceus then tried to cheat Castor and Pollux out of their share of the catde. The twins decided to take the cattle themselves, but were caught as they started to sneak away. A fight broke out in which Castor, Idas, and Lynceus were all killed.

This story also has several different endings. In one, Castor's spirit went to Hades , the place of the dead, because he was a human. Pollux, who was a god, was so devastated at being separated from his brother that he offered to share his immortality (ability to live forever) with Castor, or to give it up so that he could join his brother in Hades. Taking pity on his son Pollux, Zeus declared that the brothers would take turns dwelling in Hades and with the gods on Mount Olympus. On one day, Castor would be with the gods and Pollux would be in Hades on the next, the two would change places. In another ending, Castor remained in Hades, but Pollux was allowed to visit him every other day. Most versions of the myth say that Zeus placed the brothers in the heavens as part of the constellation—group of stars—known as Gemini. Today the two brightest stars in the constellation Gemini are named Castor and Pollux.

Pollux's Onomasticon, the Oldest Specimen of Encylopedism Surviving from Antiquity

Page opening from the Aldine edition of Pollux's Onomasticon (1502) the first edition in Greek.

Julius Pollux's ( Ἰ&omicronύ&lambda&iota&omicron&sigmaf &Pi&omicron&lambda&upsilon&delta&epsilonύ&kappa&eta&sigmaf is) Onomasticon, a thesaurus of Attic Greek synonyms and phrases arranged thematically in ten books, is the oldest specimen of encyclopedism surviving from antiquity. It is also the only surviving Greek lexical work with an onomastic structure&mdash not an alphabetic sequence of lemmata but topical assemblages of synonyms.

One of the most significant intellectuals of the later second century CE, the apogee of Hellenism under the Roman Empire, Pollux, born in the city of Naucratis in Egypt, was a Greek sophist and grammarian. He received instruction in criticism from his father, and afterwards went to Athens, where he studied rhetoric under the sophist Adrian. He opened a private school at Athens, where he gave instruction in grammar and rhetoric, and was subsequently appointed by the emperor Commodus to the chair of rhetoric at Athens. He died during the reign of Commodus at the age of fifty-eight.

The Onomasticon, Pollux's only surviving work, is divided into ten books, each of which contains a short dedication to Commodus as Caesar indicating that the work was published before 177 CE, since Commodus became Augustus in that year. Each book forms a separate treatise by itself, containing the most important words relating to certain subjects, with short explanations of the meanings of the words, which are frequently illustrated by quotations from ancient writers. Instead of an alphabetical arrangement, the words are given according to the subjects treated of in each book. The object of the work was to present youths with a kind of store-house, from which they could borrow all the words of which they had need, and could at the same time learn their usage in the best writers. Subject matter of the ten books is as follows:

"1. Of the gods and their worship, of kings, of speed and slowness, of dyeing, of commerce and manuftactures, of fertility and the contrary, of time and the divisions of the year, of houses, of ships, of war, of horses, of agriculture, of the parts of the plough and the waggon, and of bees.

2. The second treats of man, his eye, the parts of his body and the like.

3. Of relations, of political life, of friends, of the love of country, of love, of the relation between masters and slaves, of money, of travelling, and numerous other subjects.

4. Of the various branches of knowledge and science.

6. Of meals, the names of crimes, &c.

7. Of the different trades, &c.

8. Of the courts, the administration of justice, &c.

9. Of towns, buildings, coins, games, &c.

&ldquoIt supplies in passing much rare and valuable information on many points of classical antiquity&mdash objects in daily life, the theater, politics&mdash and quotes numerous fragments of lost works. Pollux was probably the person satirized by Lucian as a worthless and ignorant person who gains a reputation as an orator by sheer effrontery, and pilloried in his Lexiphanes, a satire upon the affectation of obscure and obsolete words&rdquo (Encyclopaedia Britannica [1999]).

The Onomasticon did not survive in its original form all manuscripts of its text derive from four incomplete exemplars which descend from a common hyparchetype&mdash an epitome owned and interpolated by the Greek Orthodox theologian Arethas of Patrae, later Bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia. One of the few known Byzantine book collectors, Arethas also owned the earliest surviving manuscripts of Euclid and Plato, among other items. The editio princeps of Pollux&rsquos Onomasticon, issued by Aldus Manutius in 1502, made the work more widely available to Renaissance scholars and antiquaries for the first time.
