Philomela from the Arion album. Tereus may have cut her tongue out, but she turned into a bird and sings to this day. Here defiance was in her last words after Tereus raped her.
"Now that I have no shame, I will proclaim it.
Given the chance, I will go where the people are,
Tell everybody; if you shut me here,
I will move the very woods and rocks to pity.
The air of Heaven will hear, and any god,
If there is any god in Heaven, will hear me."
