ANTARES

, in Astronomy, the scorpion's heart; a fixed star of the first magnitude, in the constellation Scorpio.

ANTECANIS is used by some astronomers, to denote the constellation otherwise called canis minor, or the star procyon. It is so called, as preceding, or being the forerunner of the canis major, and rising a little before it.
