Named for the Greek princess Chione, who had the misfortune of having both Apollo {see planet  (1862)} and Hermes fall in love with her. She was the mother of Autolykos by Hermes and of Philammon by Apollo. She was arrogant enough to compare herself with Artemis {see planet  (105)}, who killed her in revenge. (M 27129)
