Latona and the Lycian Peasants, François Spiering (workshop of), c. 1593 - c. 1610
Parched with thirst, the goddess Latona and her children Apollo and Diana stopped to drink water from a lake in Lycia. The farmers, however, prevented her from doing this by churning the water up, making it muddy and undrinkable. The angry goddess punished them by turning them into frogs. This curse is foreshadowed here by the frogs that can be seen here and there in the water and on the banks.
