In Agnipurāṇa (Agnipurana), Ariṣṭanemi(Arishtanemi) is a progenitor-father. Sixteen sons were born out of the wombs of his wives — ariṣṭanemi-patnīnām apatyanīha ṣoḍaśa. It may be so that Ariṣṭanemi here refers to Kaśyapa (Kasyapa).
According to Devibhāgavata (Devibhagavata), Ariṣṭanemi himself had been the founder of a genealogical line. Dakṣa (Daksha) sired six daughters, who were born of the womb of his wife Vīriṇī (Virini). Four of these daughters were married to Ariṣṭanemi. These four daughters were called Pataṅgī (Patangi), Yāminī (Yamini), Tāmrā (Tamra)and Timi .
