Leto was the daughter of the Titans Coeus and Phoebe.[1]

A beautiful minor goddess, she was one of Zeus' many lovers, and he eventually impregnated her.[2]

Zeus' jealous wife Hera prohibited the pregnant Leto from giving birth on solid ground by mystically compeling all the interconnected lands of Earth to reject her.[2]

Leto foun refuge on the floating island of Delos where she gave birth to the twins Artemis and Apollo.[2]

Olympians sometimes mature in days, or even minutes, and according to myths, Artemis helped deliver Apollo shortly after she was herself born.[2]

The siblings soon discovered their natural talent for archery and, using arrows forged by Hephaestus, slew the Earth-serpent Python that Hera had sent to attack Leto.[2][1]

Later, Leto secured Delos with four pillars.[2]
