Selene fell in love with the handsome young shepherd Endymion, who was allowed to choose what he would, and he chose to sleep for ever, remaining deathless and ageless. (Alternate telling: she lulled him into an eternal sleep so that he could never leave her.)

In art, Selene is represented driving a chariot drawn by two horses, or sometimes, by two oxen. She is often identified with the Olympian goddess of the moon, Artemis.
