1163 Saga

This minor planet is named after a kind of epic story in historical Nordic and Germanic culture. Sagas are usually stories about kings and heroes and saints and warriors. The word saga has since crossed over into English as any long-form epic story.

The symbol of this asteroid is a scroll, with an Old Norse Futhark rune Sol, or ᛊ, represented in Unicode as U+16CA.
