8060 Anius           Discovered 1973 Sept. 19 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Named after Anius, son and priest to Apollo on the isle of Delos. His three daughters could change anything into wine, grain or oil. So it was easy for Anius to supply the Greek army with these things. As a result, Agamemnon kidnapped the three daughters. But after they prayed to Dionysos, the god transformed the girls into birds.
