        Abulfeda (62 km.) bottom-largest, is a Moon impact crater located in the central highlands of the Moon. To the north ic crater Almanon (49 km.). A chain of craters named Catena Abulfeda runs between the northern edge of Abulfeda and Almanon's southern edge, then continues with a length of 210 km in Rupes Altai.The chain crater in the photo is as a long crack.
The crater was named after Ismael Abul-Fida Kurdish,an historian who lived in the 14th century.
       Almanon (49 km.) Abulfeda-over's, is named after the calif Abbasid Al Ma'mun. Above it are two craters, a smaller one called Almanon A and B is the largest At the west of Almanon is Tacitus (40 km .). Almanon C is attached to the southwestern edge of Almanon.
