Manilius (39 km) is like crater Plinius (43 km), on shapes, dimensions, they are just a few kilometers difference in size, and both have central mountains, but also because they are the only of its kind in the region.
Manilius, is located on the east of Vaporum basin, a plain at the foot of the Montes Apenninus. Mare Vaporum (245 km), has a round shape, distinctive and clearly defined, without interpenetration with other basins.
It is adjacent to lakes, called "Lacus": on north, Lacus Felicitatis, Odii, Doloris, and Sinus Fidei at northwest. West, Mare Vaporum is framed by Montes Apenninus.
