The first to identify this group of stars were the Babylonians! But they are not mentioned in this page. I don't remeber their names in Akkadian, but they are mentioned on tablets called MUL.apin that were edited on the begining of the first millenium BC. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:21, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
Since there isn't evidence that the Celts celebrated the solstices and equinoxes, we shouldn't be referring to Samhain or Beltain as "cross quarters". Dubious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:52, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
The recently discovered Lismullin Hendge (Lismullin, Ireland) is aligned to the rising of the Pleiades (see: ‘Harvesting the Star: A pagan temple at Lismullin, Co. Meath’, authored by the excavator Aidan O’Connell)- marking a point between equinox and solstice. Additionally, numerous monuments in Ireland are aligned to specific solstice or equinox events; whether rising or setting of the sun. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ardaraith (talk • contribs) 17:28, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

How would the Nez Perce have known there were 7 stars, if only 6 were visible to the naked eye? Did they have telescopes? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:58, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
A lot of the short sections here basically just say "The Pleiades is called so-and-so in this language". This article is titled "Pleiades in folklore and literature", not "How to say Pleiades in various languages". Either add more information on the Pleiades' relevance to a particular culture or remove the section. We don't need a new section for every language/country/culture in the world.

There is nothing currently on this page regarding the Pleiades in Literature. Is the Page title correct?
Here I would expect to see (for example) expect to see a link to this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nova_%28novel%29 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:13, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
