In Greek mythology, Ctimene (/ˈtɪmɪni/ [1]; Greek: Κτιμένη, Ktimene) was the younger sister of Odysseus, the legendary king of Ithaca.[2] She was the daughter of Laërtes and Anticlea, and was raised by them alongside the servant Eumaeus, who was treated almost as her equal. Ctimene was married off to Eurylochus of Same for a massive bride-price.[3] Her husband accompanied Odysseus on his journey from Troy but, like all of Odysseus's men, died before reaching home.
