Cartilage: synchondrosis

In addition, other bones are joined by the medium of cartilage: epiphyses (Book 2, Ch. 40, nos. 1, 2, 4, 5) in very early life are attached to their bones by means of cartilage, as are the bones of the pubis [symphysis] (j in the first skeleton) and the ossicles of the hyoid bone (G in figs. 1, 2, ch. 13). 54 This type of connection from cartilage is called sugxo/ndrwsij.
