Artume (also called Aritimi, Artames, or Artumes) was an Etruscan goddess who was the mistress of animals, goddess of human assemblies and hunting deity of Neolithic Origin. She was associated with the Greek goddess Artemis in later history.[1] Aritimi was also considered the founder of the Etruscan town Aritie, which is today the Italian town Arezzo.[citation needed]

Artume in popular culture[edit]

Artume appeared as a recurring character in Marvel Comics.[2] However, this is not the goddess, but a daughter of Hippolyta in Marvel Comics.

Artume also relates to the Artume String Quartet, a UK based ensemble.
