Named for the daughter of Agamemnon {see planet  (911)} and Clytemnestra {see planet  (179)} and sister of Orestes and Electra {see planet  (130)}. The Greeks, detained at Aulis by contrary winds and unable to sail for Troy, were informed by a soothsayer that Iphigenia must be sacrificed to appease the gods, for Agamemnon had provoked Artemis {see planet  (105)} by killing her favorite stag. As Agamemnon was about to strike the fatal blow, a large and beautiful stag appeared in Iphigenia’s place. The winds became favorable and the Greeks sailed for Troy. In Iliad, Iphigenia is called Chrysothemis {see planet  (637)}. (Z 138)
