330 Adalberta is a small asteroid orbiting in the asteroid belt. It was discovered by Max Wolf on February 2, 1910, in Heidelberg.[1]

An object discovered March 18, 1892, by Max Wolf with provisional designation "1892 X" was named 330 Adalberta, but was lost and never recovered. In 1982, it was determined that the observations leading to the designation of 1892 X were stars, and the object never existed. The name and number 330 Adalberta was then reused for another asteroid discovered by Max Wolf on February 2, 1910, which had the provisional designation A910 CB.
