Erinome,also known as Jupiter XXV, is a retrograde irregular satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by a team of astronomers from the University of Hawaii led by Scott S. Sheppard et al. in 2000, and given the temporary designation S/2000 J 4. Erinome is about 3.2 kilometres in diameter, and orbits Jupiter at an average distance of 22,986 Mm in 711.965 days, at an inclination of 164 to the ecliptic (162 to Jupiter's equator), in a retrograde direction and with an eccentricity of 0.2552. It was named in October 2002 after the mythological Erinome, said to be a "daughter of Celes, compelled by Venus to fall in love with Jupiter." Erinome belongs to the Carme group, made up of irregular retrograde moons orbiting Jupiter at a distance ranging between 23 and 24 Gm and at an inclination of about 165.
