The connection of the clavicle to the acromion

The clavicle is articulated to this process by a scarcely projecting tubercle 23 [extremitas acromialis] (Q in fig. 3), wider than it is long, and rather oblique; such an articulation takes place here [art. acromioclavicularis] that you can scarcely distinguish whether the bone receives or is received. This is the type of joint that we have said the Greeks called a)rqrwdi/a. 24
