14792 Thyestes           Discovered 1973 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Thyestes was the son of Pelops and brother of Atreus. Atreus killed the children of Thyestes and gave them to Thyestes to eat. Because of this Thyestes cursed the family of Atreus.
