Latona

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.

Milton: Sonnets.
