Resembling the beak of a crow. A name given by Galen- and still retained- to the short, thick process, situate at the anterior part of the upper margin of the scapula, which has some resemblance to the beak of a crow. This process gives attachment to the Coraco-clavicular and Coraco-acromial ligaments, and to the Coraco-brachialis, Pectoralis minor,and Biceps muscles.
