Selene is the moon goddess in Greek folklore...
She resembles a young woman with an extremely white face who travels on a silver chariot drawn by two horses.
She is often shown riding a horse or a bull.
Selene is said to wear robes, carry a torch, and wear a half moon on her head.
She was not one of the twelve great gods on Olympus...
After her brother Helios completes his journey across the sky, she begins hers.
Before Selene's journey across the night sky she bathes in the sea....
Sometimes she was said to drive a team of oxen and her lunar crescent was likened to the horns of a bull...
The seduction of Endymion is the love that brings Selene the most fame.
She fell in love with the shepard, Endymion, and seduced him while he lie sleeping in a cave.
Some sources say Endymion was a king or a hunter, rather than a shepherd.
Her seduction of Endymion resulted in the birth of fifty daughters, one of which was Naxos.
Selene's great love was the shepherd prince Endymion.
Endymion with the help of Zeus upon Selene's request chose never to grow old and to sleep eternally.
Endymion was placed in a state of eternal slumber in a cave near the peak of Lydian Mount Latmos.
There his heavenly bride descended to consort with him in the night and kissed by her rays of light....
