Erinome (also known as Jupiter XXV) is a retrograde irregular satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by a team of astronomers from the University of Hawaii led by Scotts S. Sheppard in 2000, and given the temporary designation S/2000 J 4.

Erinome is about 3.2 kilometres in diameter, and orbits Jupiter at an average distance of 22,986 Mm in 711.965 days, at an inclination of 164° to the ecliptic (162° to Jupiter's equator), in a retrograde direction with an eccentricity of 0.2552.

It was named in October 2002 after the mythological Erinome, which is said to be a "daughter of Celes, compelled by Venus to fall in love with Jupiter."
