Selene was the Titan-goddess of the moon in ancient Greek mythology. She was a daughter of Hyperion and Theia who rode through the sky at night in a chariot drawn by winged horses. She fell in love with a shepherd prince called Endymion. Having learned from her sister Eos not to ask for immortality for her lover, she asked Zeus to grant him eternal youth but in a state of eternal sleep so that he would never leave her. He was placed in a cave near the peak of Mount Latmos in Lydia and Eos descended to consort with him in the night.
