As DeBrohun discusses, in the context of the Metamorphoses, the violent episode is interrupted by a short description of a centaur couple, Cyllarus and Hylonome, who, upon entering the battle, are almost immediately struck down.
'Centaurs in Love and War: Cyllarus and Hylonome in Ovid "Metamorphoses" 12.393-428' The American Journal of Philology 125, 393-428.
In Section 4, the genetic algorithm is used to find various trajectories to the target asteroid Hylonome. Section 5 is devoted to the interception of an asteroid of high inclination to the ecliptic plane.
The GA utilized in this paper uses a fixed population of 300 for finding trajectories to Hylonome and Hidalgo.
Hylonome was chosen as a target due to its large orbit relative to all other asteroids and small bodies that have been investigated to date.
The results in Table 8 were obtained for the trajectory to Hylonome with a flyby gravity assist from Jupiter.
Like Hylonome, Hidalgo is classed as a Centaur object, having a semimajor axis that is between that of Jupiter and Neptune.

Using as a research source Pierre Grimal's Dictionary of Greek and Roman mythology, we have found a number of 95 characters, of which we mention Antigone, Deianira, Heracles, Narcissus, Hylonome
the Centaur, Niobe, Sappho, Jocasta, Melicertes (Palemon), Dido, Euphrates, Euridyce, Ajax, Ino (Leucothea), Cyone, Anticlea, Calydon, Melos, Phaedra, Thisbe, Parthenope, Althaea, Amata, Aura, Byblis--to mention just some of the names which are rather more popular resorted to the supreme gesture of ending their life in a free and consenting manner, either by hanging (most cases), or by tossing themselves into a void, a river or into the sea, by fire or sword.

The elegiac meaning of painting is more obvious in Piero di Cosimo's Battle of the Lapiths and Centaurs, which graphically records Ovid's detailed mock-epic description of the melee.(29) In the central foreground, the centauress Hylonome
gently cradles her dead beloved, Cyllarus, eliciting the sympathy of the viewer, who is made to feel the deep pathos of her loss and grief.
