79144 Cervantes           Discovered 1992 Feb. 2 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) was a Spanish novelist best known for Don Quijote (1605). In his eight comic sketches Entremeses, he introduced elements from the novel, creating clear pictures of the everyday life of his time. His first major work was La Galatea (1585).
