Anaces Castor and Pollux were so called, either from the cessation of the war, ἀνοχή, which they had undertaken to rescue their sister Helen, whom Theseus had carried off; or from their singular care to preserve the city Aphidnae, which they had reduced to submission, from the ravages of the soldiers. The Greek word ἃνακες literally means kings.
