Cleobis

in Greek legend, as recounted by Herodotus, the sons of Cydippe (who was identified by Cicero, in Tusculan Disputations, as the priestess of Hera, queen of the gods). At Argos, they were noted for their filial devotion and for their athletic prowess and strength. During an Argive festival honouring Hera, Cydippe was called to the temple. When her oxteam could not be found, the brothers took up the yoke of the ceremonial wagon and conveyed her there themselves.
