Eunice, asteroid 185 (the 185th asteroid to be discovered, on March 1, 1878), is approximately 188 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.5 years. It was named after one of the Greek Nereids, for good victory or happy victory. It was named in commemoration of a peace treaty that was signed between Turkey and Russia two days after this body was discovered. The asteroid indicates good luck and a fortunate outcome to activities undertaken in matters associated with its sign and house position.
