Latoʹna

.

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 hinds that were transformed to frogs

Railed at Latona’s twin-born progeny,

Which after held the sun and moon in fee.”


Milton: Sonnets.
