Arctic Pole
"The arctic pole… is named the Arctus or Arcturus, after the Great Bear which is also named Calisto, Helice, and Septentrionalis from the seven stars of Plaustrum, that are called Triones… The wind coming from that part of the world is named in the same way and is called Borealis and Aquilonicus." (Cosmographiae introductio, chap. II - Hessler 2008)
