Named for the builder of King Minos’ {see planet  (6239)} labyrinth, who was subsequently imprisoned there with his son Icarus. Both escaped, on wings of feathers and wax, but whereas Icarus was drowned when the wax in his wings melted {see planet  (1566)}, Daedalus went on to Sicily and built there a temple to Apollo {see planet  (1862)}.
