{1} R following the quantity indicates a retrograde orbit.

{2} Sync. = synchronous rotation; the rotation and orbital periods are the same. {3} Quantities given in parentheses are poorly known. {4} Co-orbital moons.

{5} "Trojan" moons: Telesto precedes Tethys in its orbit by 60°; Calypso follows Tethys by 60°.

{6} "Trojan" moons: Helene precedes Dione in its orbit by 60°; Polydeuces follows

Dione by 60° on average, but with wide variations. {7} Average value. The inclination oscillates about this value by 7.5° (plus or minus) over a 3,000-year period.
