2363 Cebriones (1977 TJ3) is a Jupiter Trojan discovered on October 4, 1977 at Purple Mountain Observatory.[1] This asteroid is named for Cebriones the charioteer of Hector.[7]

Photometric observations of this asteroid during 1994 were used to build a light curve showing a rotation period of 20.05 ± 0.04 hours with a brightness variation of 0.22 ± 0.01 magnitude.[8]
