A saddle-like prominence on the upper surface of the sphenoid bone, situated in the middle cranial fossa and dividing it into two halves. The posterior part, dorsum sellae is the highest; in front of this is the hypophyseal (pituitary) fossa, and in front of that the tuberculum sellae or pommel of the saddle (olivary eminence).

A depression at the upper surface of the sphenoid bone, which is bounded, anteriorly and posteriorly, by the clinoid processes, and lodges the pituitary gland. It is so called from its resemblance to a Turkish saddle. The broad rough plate, behind, and somewhat overhanging the Sella Turcica is the Dorsum Ephippii.
