(217) Eudora

Reference work entry

Discovered 1880 Aug. 30 by J. Coggia at Marseilles.

Eudora is the name for (1) one of the Nereides, (2) one of the Atlantides, and (3) one of the Hyades in Greek mythology. The last interpretation seems most likely because Coggia also named another planet {see planet  (193)} after a Hyades member. (H 26; LDS)
