This could be a short one. Today’s discovery, 178 Belisana, is a main belt asteroid, spotted by our old friend Johann Palisa on November 6th, 1877. It is an S-type, stony asteroid, named after the Celtic goddess of almost the same name, Belisama.
The goddess Belisama was popular in Gaul, and has been associated with Minerva. It is also possible, but not certain, that she was goddesss of one of my local rivers, the Ribble.
