Trojan asteroids definitions

Britannica Concise

Two groups of asteroids named for heroes of Greece and Troy in Homer's Iliad. These minor planets revolve around the sun at the Lagrangian points (see J.-L. Lagrange) in Jupiter's orbit. About 500 are known; Achilles, the first, was discovered in 1906. The known Trojans undoubtedly rank among the larger asteroids but appear faint because of their great distance from earth.
