(IAU Directions) LINDENAU.--This formation, about 35 miles in diameter, is bounded on the E. by a regular unbroken wall nearly 8,600 feet in height; but which on the W. and N.W. is far loftier and more complex, rising to about 12,000 feet above the floor, consisting of four or more distinct ramparts, separated by deep valleys, and extending towards Rabbi Levi. Neison points out that under a high light Lindenau appears to have a bright uniform single wall. There is a small central mountain and some minor inequalities in the interior.
