Leuco'thoe

a daughter of the Babylonian king Orchamus and Eurynome, was beloved by Apollo; but her amour was betrayed by the jealous Clytia to her father, who buried her alive; whereupon Apollo metamorphosed her into an incense shrub. (Ov. Met. 4.208, &c.) Leucothoe is in some writers only another form for Leucothea. (Hyg. Fab. 125.)
