752 Sulamitis, provisional designation 1913 RL, is a asteroid from the inner regions of the asteroid belt, approximately 60 kilometers (37 miles) in diameter. It is the parent body of the Sulamitis family (408),[4] a small family of 300 known carbonaceous asteroids.[8]:23

Sulamitis was discovered on 30 April 1913, by Georgian–Russian astronomers Grigory Neujmin at the Simeiz Observatory on the Crimean peninsula.[1] It was named after Sulamith, a beautiful woman mentioned in the book Solomon's Song of Songs of the Old Testament. The figure possibly refers to the Queen of Sheba in the Hebrew Bible.[2]

Photometric observations of this asteroid collected during 2004–2005 show a rotation period of 27.367 ± 0.005 hours with a brightness variation of 0.20 ± 0.03 magnitude.[7]
