Very nice image of one of the most magnificent areas on the Moon Neil. Archimedes has a hook on the south glacis that is actually the only remains of the rim of a ghost crater. The Montes Archimedes seem to have been embayed by major eruptive episodes given the various lava flows that surround them now. Given their placement relative to Montes Spitzbergen to the north, these two lunar mountain ranges may in fact be the remains of a segment of an Imbrium multi-ring internal to the main topographical rim.
