Named for one of Aeneas’ {see planet  (1172)} wandering companions at arms after the fall of Troy and the only Trojan who had dared to box with Paris {see planet  (3317)}, according to Virgil’s Aeneid. When Aeneas’ men stopped in Sicily and had games with the Sicilians, Dares boxed with a Sicilian named Entellus, using rawhide gloves. Entellus nearly beat Dares, but Aeneas called off the fight.
