In Greek mythology, Hieromneme (/ˌhaɪərɒmˈnm/; Ancient Greek: Ἱερομνήμη means "memory of the holy rites" which came from hieros and mnêma.) was a minor naiad of Asia Minor. She was a daughter of the river-god Simoïs and the wife of Assaracus, by whom she bore Capys.[1] Alternately, Hieromneme was the daughter-in-law of Assaracus, wife of Capys and mother of Anchises.[2] In some accounts, Clytodora was called the wife of Assaracus[2] while Themiste was regarded as the consort of Capys.[1]
