In the Greek Mythology, Séléné (in Greek old Σελήνη / Selếnê ), girl of the Titans Hypérion and Théia, sister of Photogravure (Sun) and of Éos (Dawn), is a goddess of the the Moon - more specifically of full moon, second member of the triad made up of Artémis (the new moon) and of Hécate (the decreasing moon). It is often comparable in Artémis, even if it personifies the lunar star rather itself.
It is generally described like a beautiful woman with the pale or white face, vétue of long white or silver plated fluid dresses and carrying the moon while growing turned over on its head. Other sources tell that it also carries a torch and others still lend to him two large white wings in the back.
After being itself bathed in the ocean, it carries out a tank silver plated through the obscure sky, drawn by white horses in certain tales and by white oxen in others. It is also often depicted assembling a horse or a bull. It shone of a soft silver plated light while it travels through the skies, returning its soft light on the ensommeillée ground.
It had several lovers, among whom:
- Side, which will allure it by offering a white ox herd to him;
- Zeus, of which it will have two girls, Hersé and Pandia;
- Endymion, a young person and beautiful shepherd, whom it plunges in a sleep eternal so that he preserves his beauty.
