Camilla

Roman - A Volscian princess. Daughter of Metabus. It was said that she could run on growing corn without bending it, or on water without wetting her feet. Her father, fleeing from the troops of his own country, tied the baby Camilla to his spear and threw her across the River Amasenus and then swam across to retrieve her. She joined the Latins and Rutulians in the fight against the Trojans in Italy under Aeneas, and was killed by Arruns. At times, known as Camilla.
