52293 Mommsen           Discovered 1990 Oct. 12 by F. Börngen and L. D. Schmadel at Tautenburg.
German classical historian and epigraphist Theodor Mommsen (1817-1903) revolutionized the study of Roman history and initiated the exploration of the Roman border fortifications in Germany ("limes"). A powerful writer, he won the 1902 Nobel Prize in literature.
