Kastor's horse. [So named] from the [verb] ke/llein ['to impel'].[1] The quick one. Stesichorus says that Hermes gave to the Dioskouroi "Firey and Snatchy, swift children of Flashfoot and [...] Kyllaros."[2]
Greek Original:

[1] An unlikely etymology. As a common noun *ku/llaros can refer to a type of crab; see Aristotle, History of Animals 530a12. Similar glossing in Etymologicum Gudianum 353.22, Etymologicum Magnum 544.55.
[2] Stesichorus [sigma 1095] fr.1 Page (from the Funeral Games for Pelias) -- here too savagely abridged: it is Hera who gives the horse of this name. See generally web address 1 below.
