Harmonia

Next, a a(rmoni/a is a structure of bones along a simple line, joined without any fitting together of swellings, depressions, or roughness. Certain bones of the upper maxilla, and especially the bones of the nose, are thought to be joined in this fashion. Such a joint is hardly ever made exactly like a simple line [sutura plana]: numerous rough places that fit into each other in a continual series occur in harmonia when the bones are broken; for this reason the ancients seem generally to have included harmoniae under the term “sutures.”
