Selene (Luna) Sightings

  • The Argonautica by Apollonius Rhodius 301BC - 202BC

    In this telling of the Quest for the Golden Fleece, when Selene sees Medea smitten with love for Jason, she thinks it's mad funny.

  • Georgics by Virgil 101BC - 2BC

    Read Virgil's steamy version of how Pan seduced Selene from the sky with a really nice fleece. Mmm, fleece.

  • The Fall of Troy by Quintus Smyrnaeus 301 - 400

    In this ancient epic, you can get the lowdown on Selene's affair with the hunky Endymion. (And you thought it was just about Troy.)

  • Dionysiaca by Nonnus 401 - 500

    Read all about how Selene takes a bath in the ocean before every nightly ride. (Remember kids: good personal hygiene is important, even for moon goddesses.)

  • Zenon: Z3 2004

    In this Disney Channel movie, the moon goddess, here called Selena, sends strange dreams to the overachieving heroine, Zenon.
