«To a large extent Delos owed its development to the fact that it was the birthplace of Apollo, which made it a holy place. The tale is well-known. As the time for the birth of Leto’s child by Zeus approached, Hera’s jealousy of her rival knew no bounds; she hunted Leto all over the world so that the mother could find no place in which to bring forth her child. Leto eventually came to a barren and isolated rock, which, scarcely rising above the surface of the sea was always changing position.»
