In Greek mythology, the goddess Pandia (Πανδία) or Pandeia (Πανδεία), meaning all divine, was another personification of brightness and a daughter of Zeus and Selene. Many have argued that she could be a goddess of either the full moon or the sun. Pandia was often said to be a goddess of beauty and youth, being confused with Hebe as Selene herself was sometimes confused with Hebe's mother Hera. Her beauty was renowned among the gods.
She also had a monster as a brother, the Nemean Lion, and fifty half-sisters, the Menae. Her full sisters could be Herse and Nemea (also called daughters of Zeus and Selene in some sources), but it is highly possible that Herse, Pandia and Nemea are the same goddess using different names, each one deriving from a different myth about the same goddess.
