Cyllʹaros

,

according to Virgil, was the celebrated horse of Pollux (Geor., iii. 90), but, according to Ovid, it was Castor’s steed (Met., xii. 408).

“He, O Castor, was a courser worthy thee …

Coal-black his colour, but like jet it shone;

His legs and flowing tail were white alone.”


Dryden: Ovid’s Metamorphose, xii.
