The temple to the goddess Leto (pronounced LAY-T-OH, and meaning Lady) was especially rich in sculptures, including the tomb (G: Skipwith 67. 841) which depicts an episode from her story.

by Marina Warner (Author). An extraordinary novel. Breathtaking in its scope and ambition. Warner brilliantly communicates the kaleidoscope of cultures, tribes and nationalities encountered by Leto on her epic journey.

When a mummy in the Museum of Albion is unpacked it is found to contain a bundle of curious objects and documents which tell of the wanderings of an unknown woman, Leto. On the run, in a far-off era of civil strife, Leto gives birth to twins, shelters with wolves, survives in a desert stronghold as the lover of its commander, stows away on a ship loaded with plundered antiquities and then works as a maid in a war-torn city. She loses her son but saves her daughter during a long siege.
