Brief
Pitatus & Hesiodus take up the full screen here in this cropped image by Cidadao. Hesiodus is a flooded 43-km-wide crater to the left of larger Pitatus.  Pitatus is a flooded walled plain and is 97 km wide. Hesiodus A  is the dark crater at the 7 o'clock position of Pitatus and is one of the rare examples of a crater with double concentric walls. The diameter of the outer wall of Hesiodus A is 15 km. A similar formation, in an adjacent area, is the crater Marth, 7 km in diameter, which is located in Palus Epidemiarum (Section 63). Note: This image represents only the small area at the bottom of section 54.
