  Article Content


In Greek mythology, Arisbe referred to several different people.

  1. Another name for Batea.
  2. An early (pre-Hecuba) wife of King Priam of Troy

In Homer's Iliad, Arisbe also refers to a place twice; once in Book VI, in which an account of the slaying of Axylus is given, who lived in 'well-built Arisbe'; and in Book XXI, in which Etion sends Lycaon to Arisbe after ransoming him.

Charles S. Peirce named his house Arisbe, inspired to do so by the account of Axylus, who welcomed all passers-by into his house in Arisbe.
