The Phocaea asteroids (/fˈsə/ foh-SEE) are a group of main-belt asteroids that orbit the Sun between 2.25 and 2.5 AU. Asteroids in this group have orbits with eccentricities greater than 0.1 and inclinations between 18 and 32.[1] The group derives its name from its most massive member, 25 Phocaea which is about 75 km in diameter.
