(Greek mythology) a Titaness who became identified with Artemis as goddess of the moon
A moon of Saturn was discovered by William Pickering on March 17, 1898. Phoebe was the first satellite to be discovered photographically. Phoebe also is designated as "Saturn IX". In Greek mythology, Phoebe was a Titan.
Phoebe (pronounced "fÄ“-bÄ“"), in her name simply the feminine counterpart of Phoebus, was one of the original Titans, one set of sons and daughters of Uranus and Gaia in Greek mythology. Traditionally associated with the moon (see Selene), she was the grandmother of Apollo and Artemis. The names Phoebe and Phoebus came to be applied as a synonym for Artemis and an epithet of Apollo.
Phoebe (Koine Greek ) was a Christian woman mentioned by the Apostle Paul in Romans 16:1.
