Epiphyses of the base

To this base two epiphyses (one is Y, the other X in figs. 1-3) are generally attached. One, which is larger, thicker, and longer, and always appears, is located at the lower angle [Y] of the basis: it is markedly blunt, and more or less rounded. The other epiphysis [X] is some distance beneath the upper angle [Z], and fuses to that point the base from which you will hear the spine of the scapula (G, H in fig. 2, G in fig. 3) takes its beginning.
