15861 Ispahan           Discovered 1996 Apr. 17 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
Ispahan is an old and beautiful Persian-Iranian city about 340 km from Teheran. Van Eyck's poem De Tuinman en de Dood tells the story of a gardener who met Death in the garden of his master. Frightened by the prospect he requested his master's horse and fled to Ispahan, where Death was awaiting him.
