Named for the wife of Priam {see planet  (884)} at the time of the Trojan War. She was a most unfortunate mother of fifty sons and twelve daughters. Many of her sons were slain, Polyxena {see planet  (595)} was sacrified, Polydorus {see planet  (4708)} drowned, Cassandra {see planet  (114)} was murdered, Hecuba herself changed into a bitch. (Z 118)

Named by Dr. Franz Heinen, director of the Realschule in Düsseldorf and trustee of the Bilk Observatory (AN 74, 31 (1869)).
