A short bone, situate at the superior and middle part of the tarsus, where it is articulated with the tibia. It is the ankle bone, sling bone, or first bone of the foot. The anterior surface is convex, and has a well-marked prominence, supported by a kind of neck, and hence has been called the head of the astragalus. The astragalus is developed by two points of ossification. Also, the atlas or first vertebra of the neck.
