In ancient Roman religion and myth, Luna is the divine embodiment of the Moon She is the female complement of the Sun (Sol). Luna is  an aspect of the Roman triple goddess (diva triformis ), along with Proserpina and Hecate (or Juno). Luna is sometimes an epithet that specializes a goddess.

In Roman art, Luna’s attributes are the crescent moon and the two-yoke chariot (biga ). In the Carmen Saeculare, performed in 17 BC, Horace invokes her as the “two-horned queen of the star.” Varro categorized Luna and Sol among the visible gods, as distinguished from invisible gods such as Neptune. Luna’s Greek counterpart was Selene.


Homeric Hymn

TO SELENE (20 lines)

(ll. 1-13) And next, sweet voiced Muses,
daughters of Zeus, well- skilled in song, tell
of the long-winged Moon. From her immortal head a radiance is
shown from heaven and embraces earth; and great is the beauty
that ariseth from her shining light. The air, unlit before, glows with
the light of her golden crown, and her rays beam clear, whensoever
bright Selene having bathed her lovely body in the waters of
Ocean, and donned her far-gleaming, shining team, drives on her
long-maned horses at full speed, at eventime in the mid-month:
then her great orbit is full and then her beams shine brightest as
she increases. So she is a sure token and a sign to mortal men.

(ll. 14-16) Once the Son of Cronos was joined with her in love; and
she conceived and bare a daughter Pandia, exceeding lovely
amongst the deathless gods.

(ll. 17-20) Hail, white-armed goddess, bright Selene, mild,
bright-tressed queen! And now I will leave you and sing the glories
of men half-divine, whose deeds minstrels, the servants of the
Muses, celebrate with lovely lips.
