I agree with your correspondent 'Wiki User'',

However, from Classical Greece, Pollux was one of a pair of twins. The other twin was 'Castor'.

You will find both stars , Castor & Pollux, in the constellation of Gemini, the heavenly twins.

Pollux is an orange giant star in the constellation of Gemini.

It is a variable star, so the values will change over time.

  • Apparent magnitude: +1.15
  • Absolute magnitude: +1.09

See related question for the difference.
