473 Nolli is a rather small asteroid that may be in the Eunomia family. It was discovered by Max Wolf on February 13, 1901, but only observed for 1 month[3] so it became a "lost asteroid" for many decades. It was recovered in 1987,[4] 86 years later. Almost nothing is known about its characteristics.
