Valerius Maximus

Castorem vero et Pollucem etiam illo tempore pro imperio populi Romani excubuisse cognitum est quo apud lacum Iuturnae suum equorumque sudorem abluentes visi sunt, iunctaque fonti aedis eorum nullius hominum manu reserata patuit.

Castor and Pollux were found vigilant on behalf of the Roman people's empire on another occasion when they were seen washing the sweat from themselves and their mounts at the pool of Juturna and their temple adjoining the spring was found open though unbarred by no man's hand.
