2207 Antenor (1977 QH1) is a Jupiter Trojan discovered on August 19, 1977 by N. S. Chernykh at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.

Photometric observations of this asteroid during 1996 were used to build a light curve showing a rotation period of 7.965 ± 0.002 hours with a brightness variation of 0.09 ± 0.01 magnitude.[1]
