The analysis of the poetical sources concerning the myth of the battle between Tyndarids (Castor and Pollux) and Apharetidai (Idas and Lynceus), from the archaic to Hellenistic age, reveals the existence of two variants on the reasons of this mortal combat and a complex tissue of allusive intertextual relationship among the sources. In the middle point of this tissue of relationships there is Pindar, with the Nemean X, where the poet makes a deliberate and ambiguous confusion of the two variants.

Abstract

The analysis of the poetical sources concerning the myth of the battle between Tyndarids (Castor and Pollux) and Apharetidai (Idas and Lynceus), from the archaic to Hellenistic age, reveals the existence of two variants on the reasons of this mortal combat and a complex tissue of allusive intertextual relationship among the sources. In the middle point of this tissue of relationships there is Pindar, with the Nemean X, where the poet makes a deliberate and ambiguous confusion of the two variants.
