  • "Auriga, the Waggoner, in astronomy, the name of one of the constellations in the northern hemisphere, containing 26 stars, according to Tycho Brahe; 40, according to Hevelius; and 66 in the Britannic catalogue.

    "This is one of the 48 asterisms mentioned by all the ancient astronomers; and represented by the figure of an old man, in a kind of sitting posture, with a goat and her kids in his left hand, and a bridle in his right."
