Description: Elger

(IAU Directions) STIBORIUS.--An elongated ring-plain, about 22 miles in diameter, S. of Piccolomini, with a lofty wall, broken in one place on the N. by a very conspicuous crater. Schmidt shows a distinct crater in the centre of the floor. I have only seen a central mountain in this position. There is a large crater on the N.E., a ring-plain on the S.E. side, and a multitude of little craters on the surrounding plain.
