Magnitude=11.4

(113) Amalthea  is a fairly typical rocky main-belt asteroid orbiting in the inner regions of the belt. It was discovered by R. Luther on March 12, 1871.
Amalthea is thought to be a fragment from the mantle of a Vesta-sized parent body that broke up around one billion years ago, with the other major remnant being (9) Metis.
The name comes from Amalthea of Greek mythology. One of Jupiter's inner small satellites, unrelated to 113 Amalthea, is also called Amalthea.
