Niobi was a woman in Greek mythology who boasted about how she had 14 children compared to Leto, a daughter of two titans, who only had two - Apollon and Artemis. The twin gods wasn't too happy about this and decided to kill Niobis children (the Niobids), Apollon shoting the seven sons and Artemis the seven daughters. This sculpture from 440-430 Bc show us one of these Niobids right before her death.
