“Diana loved Orion and came near marrying him. Apollo took this hard, and … he wagered her that she couldn’t hit with her arrows the black object in the sea. … She shot an arrow and pierced the head of Orion. The waves brought his slain body to the shore, and Diana, grieving greatly that she had struck him, and mourning his death with many tears, put him among the constellations.”
~Hyginus, Astronomica [Translated by Mary Grant]
