427 Galene

This minor planet is named after Galene, a nereid from Greek myth. She was known as the goddess of calm seas. There were no specific myths about her, but she later became associated with the name Galatea.

The symbol of this minor planet is a wave with a downward arrow on top of it, representing the suppression of activity on the surface of the sea.
