10334 Gibbon           Discovered 1991 Aug. 3 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
British historian Edward Gibbon (1737-1794), celebrated for his six-volume work The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1776-1789), attributed the fall of the Roman Empire to the loss of civil virtue among its citizens.
