E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
The Lodden, an affluent of the Thames in Windsor Forest. Pope, in Windsor Forest, says it was a nymph, fond of the chase, like Diana. It chanced one day that Pan saw her, and tried to catch her; but Lodona fled from him, imploring Cyn’thia to save her from her persecutor. No sooner had she spoken than she became “a silver stream which ever keeps its virgin coolness.”   1
