15 Eunomia

This minor planet was named after a Greek goddess of good laws and member of the Horae, Eunomia. Her sisters are Dike and Irene.

The classical symbol of this asteroid is a heart with a star above it. One idea is that it represents "reason above emotion" - a requirement for governance according to good laws as her name suggests, although in my estimation certainly both reason and emotion are necessary for good governance.
