1097 Vicia is a minor planet orbiting the Sun. Initially it received the designation 1928 PC. The numerical designation indicates this was the 1097th asteroid discovered. It was named for the Vicia genus of plants. Measurements of the lightcurve made in 2010 and 2011 give a rotation period of 26.5 ± 0.1 hours.[2]
