CIDE DICTIONARY

Pleiadesn. pl. [L., fr. Gr. ()].
  •  The seven daughters of Atlas and the nymph Pleione, fabled to have been made by Jupiter a constellation in the sky.  [1913 Webster]
  •  A group of small stars in the neck of the constellation Taurus; -- called also the seven sisters.  Job xxxviii. 31.  [1913 Webster]
    " Alcyone, the brightest of these, a star of the third magnitude, was considered by Mädler the central point around which our universe is revolving, but such a notion has been thoroughly discounted by modern observations. Only six pleiads are distinctly visible to the naked eye, whence the ancients supposed that a sister had concealed herself out of shame for having loved a mortal, Sisyphus."  [1913 Webster]

OXFORD DICTIONARY
