Mother of Apollo and Diana. When she knelt by a fountain in
Delos (infants in arms) to quench her thirst at a small lake, some
Lycian clowns insulted her and were turned into frogs.
As when those binds that were transformed to frogs
Railed at Latona's twin-born progeny,
Which after held the sun and moon in fee.
