in Slavonic mythology (changed by the ancient chroniclers into Aicis, Alces, and Altschis), were idols of the Wends and Slavs, represented as two brothers. The giant-range of mountains seems to have been the seat of their worship. The priest who served them lived in a sacred wood, which at the same time was the dwelling-place of the gods. The Romans affirmed that the Holzy were Castor and Pollux, and that the priests wore women's dresses.
