Selene was also sister of the sun god Helios and the dawn goddess Eos. One of the Selene's lovers was the mortal shepherd of king Endymion, whom she visited evry night while he sleeps in eternal slumber granted by Zeus.

Selene and Artemis were also associated with Hecate and all three were regarded as moon and lunar goddesses, but only Selene was regarded as the personification of the Moon itself.

The science named selenology studies the history of Moon, the Earth natural satellite.
