Just Say No: Virgo's Origin Story, Part II: Ovid, Metam. 1.149 - 150

Victa iacet pietas, et virgo caede madentis
ultima caelestum terras Astraea reliquit.

--Ovid, Metamorphoses, I.149-150

And in the end, when Piety lay crushed in defeat,
the maiden Astraea, the last of the divinities,
left the realm of humanity still dripping with blood.
