84 Klio (klye'-oh) is a quite large and very dark Main belt asteroid.
The name Clio had previously been suggested by the discoverer of 12 Victoria, and that is the name B. A. Gould, editor of the prestigious Astronomical Journal, adopted for that asteroid, because of the controversy over the name Victoria.
An occultation by Klio over a dim star was observed on April 2, 1997.
