Named for the daughter of Priam and Hecuba {see planets  (884) and  (108)}. Beautiful and accomplished, she was courted by Achilles, but the marriage was opposed by Hector {see planets  (588) and  (624)}. She accompanied her father when he went to Achilles to claim the body of Hector. When Achilles was killed by Paris {see planet  (3317)}, Polyxena sacrificed herself at his tomb. Some accounts say the sacrifice was not voluntary but that the spirit of Achilles appeared to the Greeks and demanded her sacrifice. (Z 218)
