        Cleomedes (126 km), is a large lunar crater located on the north-east of the moonon northern Mare Crisium. Terrain is surrounded by many impact craters. Irregular crater Tralles (43 km), is entering in the northwest edge. To the east is Delmotte (33 km). North of Cleomedes is Burckhardt (57 km).

Outer wall is heavily eroded and worn, especially along the south wall. Cleomedes C (14 km), is located on south-western edge.
Crater floor is almost flat, with a small central peak located north of the midpoint, forming a linear ridge to the northeast. There are several notable small craters on the floor, including a pair of overlapping craters on northwest rim: Cleomedes A, E.
