Mother of Leto

Mother of Leto (Phoibe)

Phoibe (Gr: Φοίβη) was the titanis of "bright" intellect. She was the third deity to hold the Oracle of Delphi which she eventually gave to her grandson and the last owner of the oracle, Apollo.

Phoibe was married to Koios, the titan of intelligence and together they birthed Leto, Asteria, and Lelantos.

Phoibe is not mentioned much in the myths so it is actually unclear what happened to her after the Titanomachy. Some say she was banished to Tartarus with the rest of the titans while other myths state that the peaceful titans remained free and stayed in Olympus.
