 Binary Trojan Asteroid 617 Patroclus and Menoetius - Explore the Cosmos | The Planetary Society
It is a Trojan asteroid, meaning that it orbits as a companion to Jupiter, 60 degrees behind the giant in its orbit (at the gravitationally stable point known as "L5").
It is a binary asteroid, having a companion, Menoetius, nearly as large as itself.
It is because Patroclus and Menoetius orbit each other that it is possible to find out their densities.

 The Dark Age Blog :: Promethean and Epimethean Man
It is recorded in Greek myth that the Titan Iapetus was the father of four sons: Menoetius, Atlas, Prometheus and Epimetheus.
Atlas and Menoetius, Prometheus and Epimetheus, in their separated state are four aspects of the overhuman just as Blake's Zoas are four aspects of the superhuman or transhuman.
Between the burdens of heaven (Atlas) and the darkness of hell (Menoetius) as the domains of space, and between foresight (Prometheus) and hindsight (Epimetheus) as action and reaction is the crossroads which Man occupies in the cosmos -- at the centre of the cross.

1498.) Aeacus, the grandfather of Achilles, was a brother of Menoetius (Horn.
112), Menoetius was a brother of Peleus, so that the friendship between Achilles and Patroclus arose from their being kinsmen.
When yet a boy Patroclus, during a game of "dice, involuntarily slew Clysonymus, a son of Amphidamas, and in consequence of this accident Patroclus was taken by his father to Peleus at Phthia, where he was educated together with Achilles.

 Patroclus and Menoetius: Asteroids, comets, or what? - The Planetary Society Blog | The Planetary Society
The news in the Nature study is that the companion, named Menoetius, is nearly as big as Patroclus (which is very unusual in binary systems); but what's odder about the pair is that the study suggests that both bodies are less dense than water ice.
That is basically unheard of for bodies that are classified as "asteroids." That density means that Patroclus and Menoetius just have to have formed in the outer solar system, as comets.
It's long been suspected that some asteroids are actually the dead cores of old comets, but Patroclus is the first Trojan to be definitively identified to be one of these.

 CNN.com - Asteroids near Jupiter are really comets - Feb 1, 2006
Most likely, the researchers say, Patroclus and Menoetius are comets, which are typically composed mainly of water ice and therefore much less dense than asteroids.
The finding could mean that many or most of the asteroid-like objects hovering around Jupiter and known as Trojans are actually comets that originated much farther from the sun and which were captured by the giant gas planet when the solar system was still young.
Patroclus and Menoetius are estimated to be about 76 miles (122 kilometers) and 70 miles (112 kilometers) wide, respectively.

Menoetius was killed during the revolt and Atlas was given the weight of the world to bear for his actions during the revolt.

 Menoetius (1) and (2)
Menoetius took Patroclus to his nephew PELEUS' house in Phthia and gave him to be brought up with ACHILLES, who would be Patroclus' life-long comrade.
Menoetius at that time offered his son advice which defines the relationship of the two comrades (11.786-9): 'My child, Achilles is higher-born than you are, but you are the elder; and yet in strength he is by far the greater.
Given the above parentage, Menoetius was the half-brother of Achilles' grandfather AEACUS; but a pseudo-Hesiodic fragment makes him the son of Aeacus and thus the brother of Achille's father Peleus, in which case Patroclus and Achilles would have been cousins.

 The Illiad, book 16
They tell me Menoetius son of Actor is still alive, as also Peleus son of Aeacus, among the Myrmidons--men whose loss we two should bitterly deplore; or are you grieving about the Argives and the way in which they are being killed at the ships, through their own high-handed doings?
The valiant son of Menoetius first drove his spear into the thigh of Areilycus just as he was turning round; the point went clean through, and broke the bone so that he fell forward.
As he spoke the Trojans were plunged in extreme and ungovernable grief; for Sarpedon, alien though he was, had been one of the main stays of their city, both as having much people with him, and himself the foremost among them all.

 02.01.2006 - Binary asteroid in Jupiter's orbit may be icy comet from solar system's infancy
They were able to chart the orbits of the asteroids to estimate the density of Sylvia, from which they concluded it is a rubble-pile of loosely, packed rock.
Because in Homer's Iliad, Patroclus was Achilles' companion and a hero of the Trojan War, Achilles would have been an appropriate name for one of the two asteroids, which are about the same size.
The asteroid designated Menoetius is about 112 kilometers (70 miles) in diameter, while Patroclus is about 122 kilometers (76 miles) wide.

 Iliad by Homer
The old knight Peleus was in the outer court, roasting the fat thigh-bones of a heifer to Jove the lord of thunder; and he held a gold chalice in his hand from which he poured drink-offerings of wine over the burning sacrifice.
Old Peleus bade his son Achilles fight ever among the foremost and outvie his peers, while Menoetius the son of Actor spoke thus to you: 'My son,' said he, 'Achilles is of nobler birth than you are, but you are older than he, though he is far the better man of the two.
SO THE son of Menoetius was attending to the hurt of Eurypylus within the tent, but the Argives and Trojans still fought desperately, nor were the trench and the high wall above it, to keep the Trojans in check longer.

 Patroclus (minor planet 617)
The larger component retains the name Patroclus while the smaller has been named Menoetius, with the provisional designation S/2001 (617) 1.
In January 2006 it was announced that Patroclus and Menoetius are more likely to be dirt-covered ice balls than rocky rubble piles, as previously supposed.
This interpretation supports a theory put forward in 2005 that the Trojans are effectively frozen comets captured by Jupiter some 650 million years after the giant planets formed.

Using the Keck II Laser Telescope in Hawaii, astronomers found that the two objects, 617 Patroclus and its companion, Menoetius, had a density of only 0.8 grams per cubic centimeters — only a third that of rock.
The findings could mean that many or most of asteroidlike objects hovering around Jupiter and known as Trojans are actually comets that originated much farther from the sun and were captured by the giant gas planet when the solar system was still young.

Heaven grant the gods be not now bringing that sorrow upon me of which my mother Thetis spoke, saying that while I was yet alive the bravest of the Myrmidons should fall before the Trojans, and see the light of the sun no longer.
vain were the words with which I cheered the hero Menoetius in his own house; I said that I would bring his brave son back again to Opoeis after he had sacked Ilius and taken his share of the spoils- but Jove does not give all men their heart's desire.
So long as he lives to look upon the light of the sun, he is in heaviness, and though I go to him I cannot help him; King Agamemnon has made him give up the maiden whom the sons of the Achaeans had awarded him, and he wastes with sorrow for her sake.

But Menoetius was outrageous, and far-seeing Zeus struck him with a lurid thunderbolt and sent him down to Erebus because of his mad presumption and exceeding pride.
And Atlas through hard constraint upholds the wide heaven with unwearying head and arms, standing at the borders of the earth before the clear-voiced Hesperides; for this lot wise Zeus assigned to him.
