Μνήμη), i. e. memory, was one of the three Muses that were in early times worshipped at Ascra in Boeotia. (Paus. 9.29.2.) But there seems to have also been a tradition that Mneme was the mother of the Muses, for Ovid (Ov. Met. 5.268) calls them Mnemonides; unless this be only an abridged form for the daughters of Mnemosyne. [Comp. MUSAE.]
