History
Castor and Pollux, in classical mythology, twin heroes called the Dioscuri; Castor was the son of Leda and Tyndareus, Pollux the son of Leda and Zeus. The Dioscuri were widely regarded as patrons of mariners and were responsible for Saint Elmo's fire . They were especially honored by the Romans, on whose side they were said to have appeared miraculously during the battle of Lake Regillus.

Not only does Paul mention Castor and Pollux but they are coupled with a "ship" of Alexandria. His words are not only accurate but prophetic in a sense since these symbols originate from wars fought with ships.

Temple of Castor & Pollux
The Temple of Castor and Pollux in the Roman Forum was originally built in gratitude for victory at the battle of Lake Regillus (495 BC). Castor and Pollux were the Dioscuri, the "twins" of Gemini, the twin sons of Zeus (Jupiter) and Leda. Their cult came to Rome from Greece via Magna Graecia and the Greek culture of Southern Italy.

Alexandria

Archaeological News from Alexandria
The Polish-Egyptian Archaeological and Preservation Mission at Kom el-Dikka in Alexandria uncovered a vast complex of well-preserved lecture halls (auditoria) of late Roman date (5th-6th centuries AD).

The total number of these halls, including some that were explored earlier, has now reached thirteen. They were all built along the Theatre Portico, which is in fact the eastern colonnade of a large public square in the centre of the Late Antique city. The auditoria all apparently feature similar dimensions and the same internal arrangement: rows of stepped benches running along the walls on three sides, occasionally forming a hemicycle at the end. The most conspicuous feature is a prominent elevated seat, placed in the middle of the hemicycle - most probably intended for the lecturer. There is little doubt that a line of such halls extended all the way from the Theatre to the northern limits of the site.
