Named for the son of Nestor {see planet  (659)} and brother of Antilochus. Thrasymedes commanded a fleet of 15 ships to Troy and was involved in the fight against Memnon {see planet  (2895)} during which Antilochus was killed. He later was among the warriors hidden inside the wooden horse. It has been noted that the orbits of (1583) Antilochus and (3801) Thrasymedes are quite similar, suggesting a common origin for these two minor planets. (M 13179)
