Artemon or Artemas

ARTEMON (ār´tî-men) or ARTEMAS: A heretic of the third century, founder of a small sect called the Artemonites. Nothing is known of him except what may be gathered from brief references in Eusebius, Epiphanius, Theodoret, and Photius; it seems certain that he shrank from applying the name God to Jesus, and he is probably to be classed with the dynamistic Monarchians (see Monarchianism); he was living at Rome, but separated from the Church and without influence, about 270. Paul of Samosata adopted and developed his views.
