Automate (Ancient Greek: Αὐτομάτη means "acting of one's own will, of oneself") was in Greek mythology one of the Danaids, who, according to Apollodorus of Athens and others, killed the (mythical) Egyptian king Busiris, who was betrothed to her;[1] whereas, according to the geographer Pausanias, she was married to Architeles, the son of Achaeus, who emigrated from Phthiotis in Thessaly to Argos with Archander.[2]
