SOPHROSYNE

Sophrosyne, asteroid 134 (the 134th asteroid to be discovered, on September 27, 1873), is approximately 116 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.1 years. The name Sophrosyne is Greek for prudence, one of the four virtues in Plato's philosophy. When prominent in a natal chart, Sophrosyne indicates a person with a prudent approach to life.
