1133 Lugduna is a main belt asteroid orbiting the Sun. It makes a revolution around the Sun once every 3.23 years. It was discovered by H. Van Gent on September 13, 1929, in Johannesburg, South Africa.[1] Lugdunum Batavorum is the Latin name for the city of Katwijk, 10 kilometers to the west of Leiden, The Netherlands. It was named by the discoverer and the orbit computer, G. Pels. Its provisional designation was 1929 RC1.[2] Measurements of the lightcurve made in 2011 give a rotation period of 5.477 ± 0.001 hours. It has a diameter of 8.5 km and a Tholen classification of S.[3]
