diameter=122 km
eponym=Leó Szilárd

Szilard is a damaged lunar crater that lies to the east-northeast of Richardson crater. About a half-crater-diameter to the northwest is the large Harkhebi walled-plain. Between Harkhebi and Szilard is the small Giordano Bruno. The ray system from this impact forms streaks across the rim and interior of Szilard.

The rim of Szilard is heavily eroded and has been reshaped by subsequent impacts. The worn satellite crater 'Szilard H' lies across the southeast rim of Szilard. The interior floor of Szilard is somewhat uneven in the western half, while the east side is more level and featureless.

Szilard lies on the far side of the Moon and can not be viewed directly from the Earth.

By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Szilard crater.
