Camilla

by Micha F. Lindemans
In Roman legend a virgin queen of the Volscians, daughter of King Metabus. She helped Turnus in his conflict with Aeneas, but got killed in doing so. Virgil (Aenead VII, 809) says that she was so swift that she could make her way over the sea without even wetting her feet, or run over a field of corn without bending a single blade.
