Narrative: Egeria, as some Roman writers tell us, was a nymph of Aricia, in Italy, and, according to Ovid, married Numa Pompilius, the second king of Rome -.after the death of her husband she became so disconsolate that she melted into tears, and was changed into a fountain by Diana. Others say she was the favorite nymph and invisible protectress of Numa, and that she generally resided in a celebrated grove, situated near the Appian Way. The fable, whatever the ancients may have said concerning it, has given a name to a fountain, in the valley between the old Appian Way and the modern road to Naples, which Byron has made the subject of some exquisitely beautiful verses in the last Canto of "Childe Harold:" J.H. Foley has taken them as the text of his work. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!
