Insertion.--Into the posterior surface of the second to the fifth ribs inclusive, just external to their angles. Nerve Supply.--The second and third intercostal nerves.

Insertion.--Into the lower borders of the last four ribs. Nerve Supply.--The tenth and eleventh intercostals. Action.--To draw the ribs downward, thus affording a fixed point for the action of the diaphragm and so aiding inspiration. The Posterior Scapular Artery. Fig. 76.
