The goat-man calls him "Kain-Tauros," and the "him" refers to what Latro saw
(which he reports at the end of the chapter), namely, the bay colt he had
just ridden, "trotting through the trees, Polos to the waist" (ch. 33, p.
269 old edition).  Furthermore, Polos himself tells Latro that he rode him
to steal the horses of the sun and to kill the boar (ch. 38, p. 308).
