1373 Cincinnati is a Main belt asteroid. It has a somewhat irregular orbit. Otherwise it is probably a typical member of the belt.

Cincinnati was discovered by the famous US astronomer Edwin Hubble on August 30, 1935. It was his only asteroid discovery. It is named after the Cincinnati Observatory, whose staff did most of the orbit computations.
