Greek for “twin”, this rapid-rotator Amor possesses a satellite with an orbital period of 11.9 hr. Suspicions arose in the Goldstone delay-Doppler echoes, and these were confirmed with the optical light curve analysis, along with Arecibo radar imaging on 2003 Nov. 23. The name was suggested by J. Montani.
