377 Campania is a large main belt asteroid that was discovered by French astronomer Auguste Charlois on September 20, 1893 in Nice.

Photometric observations of this asteroid made at the Torino Observatory in Italy during 1990–1991 were used to determine a synodic rotation period of 8.507 ± 0.003 hours.[2]
