10462 Saxogrammaticus           Discovered 1979 May 19 by R. M. West at the European Southern Observatory.
Saxo Grammaticus (c.1150-1220) was secretary to Bishop Absalon, the founder of Copenhagen. He is the author of the comprehensive Gesta Danorum (Deeds of the Danes), written in elegant Latin prose. It extends until 1190 and is a major source of knowledge about the eventful early history of this northern people and their rulers.
