Definition of Hesperus in English:
The planet Venus.
- An old Greek poet whispered in her mind: Hesperus, evening star, golden lamp of the daughter of the foam!
- Against this claim, it may be urged that one can perfectly well imagine a possible world in which astronomers discover that Hesperus and Phosphorus are two distinct planets.
- This is a tautology since Hesperus and Phosphorus are both the planet Venus - the two expressions thus have the same extension.
