Ovid, Metamorphoses 10. 513 ff (trans. Melville) (Roman epic C1st B.C. to C1st A.D.) :
"[The pregnant Myrrha was transformed into a myrrh-tree :] The tree split open and the sundered bark yielded its living load; a baby boy [Adonis] squalled, and the Naides (Naiads) laid him on soft grass and bathed him in his mother's flowing tears [myrrh]."
