Orestes and Pilad - in the myths of Ancient Greece, cousins, who were connected by such a close and disinterested friendship that they were ready to sacrifice their lives for each other. Already in ancient times, the power of this friendship became a common noun and therefore was repeatedly mentioned in the writings of Sophocles, Aeschylus, Euripides, Cicero, etc.
