Description (see definition): Rock exposures at the head of Saturn Glacier, 9 mi W of Deimos Ridge in the SE part of Alexander Island. The nunataks appear to have been first seen from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and roughly mapped from photos obtained on that flight by W.L.G. Joerg. Remapped from air photos taken by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-48, by Searle of the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1960. Named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) from association with Saturn Glacier, Dione being one of the satellites of Saturn.
