Rustaveli basin on Mercury (82.76° E, 52.39° N) is a 200.5 km diameter peak-ring basin. Since the approval of its name on April 24, 2012, it has not featured prominently in the literature. It is a large and important feature within the Hokusai (H5) quadrangle of which we are currently producing a 1:2M scale geological map. Here, we describe our first observations of Rustaveli.
