4007 Euryalos (1973 SR) is a Jupiter Trojan discovered on September 19, 1973 by Cornelis Johannes van Houten, Ingrid van Houten-Groeneveld and Tom Gehrels at Palomar Observatory.

Photometric observations of this asteroid during 1995 were used to build a light curve showing a rotation period of 6.391 ± 0.005 hours with a brightness variation of 0.07 ± 0.01 magnitude.[2]
