Named after the victor in a contest among the Greeks to see who would win an iron meteorite by throwing it the farthest. Polypoites flung the meteorite “as far as a herdsman throws a cattle staff, rifling it clear across the herd”. When it landed it probably made a small impact crater. (M 12976) _ _.
