The floor is ribbed with many rays of light emanating from Autolycus, at east, and have three very small craters, near the inner wall. The floor is flat with no features, even at very low angles of illumination.
Aristillus, is a magnificent crater, with slightly polygonal edges and a large interior wall that displays contoured terraces and has a central compact group of mountains which rise on the smooth floor.
