(ahr' tih muhss) Personal name probably shortened from Artemidoros, meaning, “gift of Artemis.” If this is the case, then the parents worshiped the Greek goddess Artemis. Paul promised to send Artemas or Tychicus to Titus, so Titus could join Paul in Nicopolis (Titus 3:12 ). Artemas would apparently take over Titus' pastoral duties in Crete. Tradition says Artemas became bishop of Lystra.
