  1. In his book, 'Reflections on a Marine Venus' Lawrence Durrell writes 'Hoyle tells me that (the Pleiades) are seven in number, but that we can only see six because one, Sterope, hides her face on account of a misfortune that befell her....' Uncharacteristically, Durrell says no more. What misfortune? Does anyone have an opinion?
