In Greek mythology, Hippe (//; Ancient Greek: Ἵππη, also known as Melanippe // Μελανίππη or Euippe // Εὐίππη; English translation: "mare (horse)") was the daughter of the Centaur Chiron and Chariclo. She bore a daughter, Melanippe or Arne, to Aeolus, and was ashamed to tell her father. Artemis took pity on her and, according to one account, turned her into the constellation Equus, the horse (more usually identified with Pegasus).
