Laothoë was the mistress of Priam, king of Troy, and she was the mother of Lycaon. Her name seems to mean 'active among the people', from laos, 'people' and thoos, 'quick', 'active', although Robert Graves, without any explanation, derives it from laas, 'stone' and the same thoos to mean 'rushing stone'. It is hard to see the significance of this.
