Flesh on flesh, back to back,
God’s gift revealed for all
Though meant for none, and a theft by one,
As the greedy dare was called.
Demurely did the noble pass
Through hamlet of first twins,
This teacher wed to greed hath grasped
Fair justice in the win.
And one pupil held against the bore,
Punished for the lie,
Hath risen from the depths of lore
To name the evil eye.

Spoiler for Twins...

dwilly (and players) your thoughts on twin cities in # 1 are along the correct lines. I found nothing with a google search to give this away so I might as well come out and say, the hamlet of first twins refers to a major city (now, though much smaller some time ago). It was oficially twinned with another European city over 65 years ago. Unfortunately, one reference I found pertaining to the city in question, while penning the riddle, stated that it is considered the world's first twin city. Further research has thrown this into doubt. Regardless, the focus on the "first twins" is a non-starter as even knowing the city would likely NOT lead to solving the riddle.

Final form. Maybe it will help:

Flesh on flesh, back to back
God’s gift revealed for all
Though meant for none, and thieved by one;
The greedy dare was called.
Demurely did the noble pass
Through city to be twin.
This teacher wed to greed hath grasped
Fair justice in the win.
And a pupil held against the bore
And punished for a spy,
Hath risen from the depths of lore
To name the evil eye.

Quite possibly. I'm not up on my Biblical mythology. I have another guess.
