Named for the Greek god of healing and medicine, son of Apollo by Coronis {see planets  (1862) and  (158)}. Physician to the Argonauts, many of whom he restored to life, he was killed by Zeus {see planet  (5731)} with a thunderbolt for attempting to resuscitate Orion, who had been murdered by Artemis {see planet  (105)}, Apollo’s twin sister. For avenging Asclepius’ murder by killing the Cyclops who had made the thunderbolt, Apollo was banished by Zeus. (M 18459)
