- (Greek mythology) Numbered in 50, (singular Mene), were the goddesses of the lunar months within a olympiad. They were the daughters of the Moon goddess, Selene, and her lover, Endymion, a mortal king. Their individual names are not attested in any sources. Each presided over one of the 50 lunar months of the 4-year Olympiad - a basic time measurement unit for the Ancient Greeks.
