notes:
 THE HYADES were the nymphs of the five stars of the constellation Hyades. They 
were daughters of the Titan Atlas who bore the starry dome of heaven upon his 
shoulders. After their brother Hyaswas killed by a lion, the tear-soaked sisters 
were placed amongst the stars as the constellation Hyades. Hyas himself was 
transformed into the constellation Aquarius. The heliacal setting of their 
constellation in November marked the start of the rainy season in Greece, hence 
the star nymphs were known as "the Rainy Ones."
