Named for the priest of Apollo whose daughter, Khryseïs, was abducted by Agamemnon {see planets  (1862),  (202), and  (911)}. Apollo, angered, sent a plague among the Greeks, until Agamemnon then took Achilles’ girl, Briseïs {see planet  (655)}, thus sparking the quarrel between Agamemnon and Achilles that led to the events described in the Iliad. (M 18144)
