(IAU Directions) HYPATIA.--A ring-plain, about 30 miles in extreme length, of very abnormal shape, on the W. side of the Mare, N.N.W. of Theophilus, with a wall rising at a peak on the W. to a height of more than 7,000 feet above a dusky floor, which does not apparently contain any detail. A small crater breaks the uniformity of the border on the E. Beyond the wall on the S.W. lies the fine bright crater Hypatia A, with another less prominent adjoining it on the S.E.
