David is shown as a young, beardless figure with short, dark hair, clad in a purple chlamys, fastened at the shoulder (though no fibula is represented), beneath which a white and golden yellow garment can be seen.

Both the radius and ulna (forearm bones), and the tibia and fibula (shank bones), are fused to each other.
The procedure involved the extraction of the lower jaw and its substitution by a bone transplant from the fibula of the patient.

As Sarah Pomeroy has noted, Spartan women always had a weapon to hand since, when they wore clothes, they favoured an old-fashioned heavy peplos which needed to be fastened at the shoulders with sharp fibulae .
Stress fractures in our study, except for one involving the lumbar spine, were located in the tibial, fibular , metatarsal, and navicular bones.
