Entropy of type $(\alpha, \beta)$ is characterized in this paper by an axiomatic approach. It includes, in particular, a measure of type $\beta$ earlier studied by many authors. This measure has been studied also by Sharma and Taneja by generalizing a functional equation earlier considered by Chaundy and McLeod. Some properties of this measure are also studied in this paper.
