40 Harmonia

This minor planet is named after the Greek goddess of harmony and concord. Her Roman counterpart is Concordia, and her antithesis is Eris, goddess of discord. Her husband is Cadmus.

The symbol for this asteroid is the Necklace of Harmonia, a cursed necklace that brought misfortune to all who wore it, which appears prominently in the stories about this asteroid's namesake. It appears as a large circle, with a small clasp at the top and a small circle pendant at the bottom.
