Paraskevopoulos (lunar crater)

Paraskevopoulos is an old lunar crater that is located on the far side of the Moon, in the higher northern latitudes. It lies just to the southwest of the younger and somewhat larger Carnot crater. To the southwest is the smaller Stoletov crater, and to the southeast lies the Fowler crater.

This is a well-eroded crater formation, with a rounded and uneven rim edge. The satellite crater 'Paraskevopoulos H' lies across the eastern rim, and the smaller 'Paraskevopoulos E' is located in the northeastern part of the interior floor. The rim edge is better defined along the norhtern and southern edges, and is nearly worn away along the west. The surviving interior floor is relatively level and featureless, with only a pair of small craterlets along the northwest and southeast edges.
