This pectoral necklace is composed of a plain, hollow neck ring attached to a frame set with a large central medallion flanked by coins and two small decorative disks.
Although it was found in Egypt, the pectoral is believed to have been made in Constantinople, since a personification of that city is depicted on the reverse of the central medallion.
The two ribbed rings at the pectoral's lower edge once held a large medallion of the emperor Theodosius I. This imperial imagery suggests that the pectoral is composed of a collection of military trophies that once belonged to a distinguished general or a member of the imperial court.

Many reef fishes use pectoral swimming to achieve very fine motion control, such as backwards motions, by keeping their bodies still and using their pectoral fins like oars.

 Pec Implants and Pectoral Augmentation Information Site
Pectoral, bicep and tricep implants, are commonly used to shape, enlarge, and firm the upper chest and arm areas — and when correctly surgically inserted — permit a natural appearance when the chest and arm muscles are either flexed or relaxed.
It's vital to understand that pectoral implants are usually only performed by a few plastic and cosmetic surgeons who have performed thousands of these procedures over a decade of experience.
Those are the surgeons that have the extensive experience required in forming and placing the solid silicone implants that are used in the medical procedure — assuring that they don't shift from their original positions or develop infection, two areas where serious medical problems could occur after surgery.

As yet, the functional significance of these historical trends in pectoral fin design remains largely untested by experiment In this paper we test the proposal that variation in pectoral fin structure has an important influence on the magnitude and orientation of fluid forces generated during maneuvering locomotion.
Despite a century of active investigation into the mechanism of pectoral fin function, there remains a critical area of study in which experimental zoologists are only now making initial progress: analysis of the physical interaction between the locomotor anatomy of freely swimming fishes and the aquatic medium.
Previous workers have shown that during actinopterygian evolution major transformations have occurred in (i) the anatomical position of the pectoral fin and (ii) the orientation of the pectoral fin base (Schmalhausen, 1916; Breder, 1926; Harris, 1937, 1938; Greenwood et al., 1966; Gosline, 1971; Alexander, 1974; Rosen, 1982; Webb, 1982).
