CORONIS

Mother of Asclepius, the soon-to-be God of Medicine.

Apollo, the god of herds, called her a cow and came up with his very own version of caesarian as he hurled her onto a funeral pyre then ripped Asclepius from her womb.

It seems he was the father of said child, but wasn't around much once he had sown his wild oats, so Coronis turned to Ischys for a warm bed to cry in. Okay, Ischys was in it at the time but it's still a nasty way to go.

Apollo was disgusted with Coronis' infidelity, which makes him a bit of a hypocrite, and the crow he sent to guard her should be ashamed. No-one likes a tell-tale-tit.
