The Situations and Names of Winds (Greek: Περὶ θέσεως ἀνέμων; Latin: Ventorum Situs) is a spurious work sometimes attributed to Aristotle. The text lists winds blowing from twelve different directions and their alternative names used in different places. According to the manuscript version of the work, The Situations and Names of Winds is an extract from a larger work entitled On Signs (De Signis)[1] likely written by a member of the peripatetic school.
