Selene, Goddess of the moon, was the daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia and sister to Helios, God of the sun.
After Helios finishes his journey across the sky, Selene, freshly washed in the waters of earth-circling Oceanus, begins her own journey as night falls upon earth. The radiance of her immortal head and golden crown light the earth during her voyage.
Though the story of Endymion is the best-known one today, Selene also had a daughter with Zeus, Pandia (all bright), Goddess of the full moon.
