A Mother's Prayers for her Trans Son: Marco Antonio Tritonio on Telethusa

TELETHUSA: Ligdi cuiusdam uxor ob immensam certe pietatem potuit ab Iside Dea impetrare, ut Iphis filius ex femina in marem converteretur. [lib.ix.fab.x]

--M. Antonii Tritonii Utinenis, Mythologia, 1560

TELETHUSA: was the wife of a man named Ligdus. Because of her steadfast piety, she was able to get the goddess Isis to transform her son Iphis from a woman into a man. [cf. Ovid's Metamorphosis book 9, story 10]
