1011 Laodamia is a stony Mars-crosser asteroid. It was discovered by German astronomer Karl Reinmuth at Heidelberg Observatory on January 5, 1924. Its provisional designation was 1924 PK. With an absolute magnitude of 12.7, the asteroid is roughly 12 kilometers in diameter. On September 5, 2083, the asteroid will pass 0.06186 AU (9,254,000 km; 5,750,000 mi) from Mars.
It was named Laodamia, a figure in the Greek mythology. However, since there are several different characters with this name, it is unclear which one is actually referred to.
