4063 Euforbo (1989 CG2) is a large 102 km Jupiter Trojan discovered on February 1, 1989, by Oss. San Vittore at Bologna.

Photometric observations of this asteroid during 1992 were used to build a light curve showing a rotation period of 8.841 ± 0.025 hours with a brightness variation of 0.19 ± 0.01 magnitude.[2]
