Named after a poem, in early days ascribed to Homer {see planet  (5700)} but denied to him by Herodotus {see planet  (3092)}. It detailed the causes of the Trojan War and served as a sort of introduction to the Iliad. Kypria is also a surname of Aphrodite {see planet  (1388)}, who was born from the foam of the sea and came to land near the island of Cyprus. (H 68; I. van Houten-Groeneveld)
