This man, enamoured of Leto, grasped her veil; her children Apollo and Artemis shot him down with arrows and killed him. And now, he says,[1] he is punished in the underworld, with missiles impaled in his liver.
Greek Original:
Tituos: houtos erôn tês Lêtous kateschen autês tou krêdemnou: hês paides Apollôn kai Artemis katetoxeusan auton kai aneilon. kai nun, phêsin, en tôi haidêi kolazetai, echôn belê empeparmena tôi hêpati.
ps.-Nonnus, Scholia mythologica 5.32.
This version is also in Apollodorus 1.23; other versions name different killers; and Homer, Odyssey 11.576-581 describes him as flattened, spreadeagled, and under never-ending attack (likewise in the liver) from a pair of vultures. See generally OCD(4) s.v. Tityus (and lambda 477 for Leto).
[1] Adler reports that mss GM, more plausibly, have "they say".
