78071 Vicent           Discovered 2002 June 1 by R. Ferrando at Observatory Pla D´Arguines.
Born in the city of Segorbe, Francesch Vicent (1450-1512) wrote the first treatise on modern chess, Libre dels jochs partits dels schacs en nombre de 100, published in Valencia in 1495. A book of chess openings---and lost since the early nineteenth century---it discussed in particular the moves of the queen and bishops.
