Named after the daughter of Ares and Aphrodite {see planet  (1388)}, wife of Cadmus {see planet  (7092)}, the founder of Thebes. She introduced art and music into Greece. (H 6)

Named by U. J. J. Leverrier.

The name was selected in order to “place a lasting monument to the happy re-establishment of peace”. The Crimean War (1854–1856) came to a close with the signing of peace in Paris, February 1856. See also the citation for planet  (28).

Discovered on 31-3-1856 in Paris by Goldschmidt, H.
