Col. Glasby (Glaucus) also informs us about the new duties of Hercules Jones (Heracles) and Col. Polhemus (Polyphemus), reminding us about the famous movie star’s “Twelve Labors” and the wily veteran’s suitability for tracking down Hylen’s abductors and any other transposed aliens.
C.I.S. (Cius) could stand for Crypto Investigative Services.

’it is [Heracles’] fate to labour for insolent Eurystheus and to accomplish twelve toils… Likewise it is destined for Polyphemus to found a glorious city at the mouth of the Cius among the Mysians…’

“…and Telamon… came in haste to Jason, and grasping his hand in his own embraced him with these words:’ Son of Aeson, be not wroth with me, if in my folly I have erred, for grief wrought upon me to utter a word arrogant and intolerable. But let me give my fault to the winds and let our hearts be joined as before.’
[And Jason replied,] ‘ Good friend,… not for long will I nurse bitter wrath, though indeed before I was grieved. For it was not flocks… nor possessions that thou wast angered to fury, but for a man, thy comrade. And I were fain thou wouldst even champion me against another man if a like thing should ever befall me.’
He spake, and they sat down, united as old.
