Did I discovered a new Moon crater?

Observe craters Aristoteles and Euxodus (87/67 km), two craters on the Moon's north.

Looking at these pictures, something crossed my mind seeing the mountain formation west of the two craters, that in this area there is a crater, so old and bombed, that is barely distinguishable. If you look closer, those mountains are curved, which may mean that that is what survived from the western edge of the crater, the rest being covered by lava.

This is the second crater "discovered" by me, the first being the one that fits Rupes Recta. There are no data on these alleged craters anywhere on the internet, or maybe I do not know. If this is a new crater discovered (but old), it should be named Lupu, by my name. :)Just kidden.
