Named for the brother of Lykaon {see planet  (4792)} and the youngest son of Priam {see planet  (884)}; born of the queen Laothoe. Although Polydoros was the swiftest of the sons of Priam, Priam refused to let the boy fight; but Polydoros rushed Achilles {see planet  (588)} anyway, and Achilles killed him beside the River Skamander, near his brother Lykaon. (M 18144; M 18323)
