Named for the brother of Polydoros and a son of Priam {see planets  (4708) and  (844)}; born of the queen Laothoe. Some years before the Trojan war, Achilles {see planet  (588)} captured Lykaon and sold him into slavery, but Lykaon made his way back to Troy, only to be killed by Achilles beside the River Skamander.
