Starting from the west of Hesiodus A and going south to Mercator we have one of the most beautiful linear rhymes of the Moon.
In this particular image besides the show given by the concentric crater Hesiodus A we have Rima Hesiodus traversing practically the whole image from north to south.
Rima, plural Rimae, (Channel) or Rille for some selenogists (narrow valley) - Fissure or channel of lava that collapsed totally or partially.
  Some Rhyme (e) are linear or curved, caused by stress or failure in the crust. Others are meandering that are believed to have been formed by rapid movement of lava flow. Winding rhymes usually originate from volcanic openings and crumbling ramps.
