Named for the daughter of Phorcys and Ceto and sister of Gorgons, Sirens and Graeae. The sea nymph Scylla and Charybdis {see planet  (388)} guarded the strait between Sicily and Italy, expanding her long necks and six heads to remove one sailor from each passing ship. (H 20)

The planet was lost for many decades — see the detective recovering story in Sky Telesc., Vol. 40, No. 6, p. 361–362 (1970).
