(From corona, a crown). The coronary ligament of the radius is a sort of ligamentary hoop, surrounding the circular circumference of the head of that bone, reaching from one side of the small lateral sigmoid, or transverse cavity of the ulna, to the other, in an arch, which is about three-fourths of a circle. It is nearly as solid as a cartilage. It connects the radius very closely to the ulna, yet admits of the pronation and the supination of the arm.
(From the same). See Jecur.

(From corona, a crown). In botany it means crowned, appearing like a coronet.

Its leaves are deeply cut; its root long and slender; many of its leaves lie flat on the earth in a circular manner, whence the name stella terrae. The leaves are downy, long, and narrow; the stalk hoary; the seeds small, and of a dark brown colour. It grows on sandy places and heaths, and flowers in June.
Its medical virtues are the same as those of the other plantains. See Plantago.

(From corrodo, to eat away). Corrosion. It is the action of appropriate menstrua on bodies, so as to produce new combinations and a change of their form without converting them to fluids. This depends on the same principles as solution. The subjects are usually metals; and the modes are either, first, by immersing the body to be corroded in a fluid menstruum, which is called corrosion by immersion; or secondly, by exposing it to the action of some vapour, and this is called cementation. There are other kinds of corrosion; as sprinkling the subject with some appropriate fluid, and afterwards rubbing it with some dry substance.
