Named probably after the daughter of the famous mathematician and philosopher Theon of Alexandria, whom she is said to have surpassed in erudition. She was celebrated for her beauty. Among Hypatia’s (370?–415 B.C.) writings were commentaries on ancient astronomical works. She was murdered by a mob of Christian fanatics. (H 29)

Hypatia is also honored by a lunar crater.
