Aristodimio (Greek: Αριστοδήμειον) is a local community (topiki koinotita) of the municipal unit (dimotiki enotita) Ithomi, of the municipality (dimos) of Messini within the regional unit (perifereiaki enotita) of Messenia in the region (perifereia) of Peloponnese, one of 13 regions into which Greece has been divided. Before 2011 it held the same position in the administrative hierarchy, according to Law 2539 of 1997, the Kapodistrias Plan, except that Ithomi was an independent deme and Aristodemio was a Local Division (Topiko Diamerisma) within it.
Aristodimio is named after Aristodemus, one of the three brothers among whom the Peloponnesus was divided during the event the ancient Greeks called the Return of the Heracleidae. His tomb is traditionally located in the area.
The community of Aristodimio contains two villages, Aristodimio and Kalovrissi or Voumazi.
