Orontius crater was once circular but over the edges occurred two impacts that formed craters Huggins (65 km), east and Orontius A (7 km), at west, and its form suffered. Therefore, this crater is affected by other impacts that have changed the face from the circular, in another shape.

Orontius is 3.1 km deep and 122 km in diameter.
Has satellite craters from A to F, and their diameter varies from 7-41 km. Orontius F is the largest, but is almost visibly embedded in the floor of the north of Orontius because its walls are not high.

Video footage of which I took these pictures is here.
