Ilium

Has an iliac crest which runs from the anterior superior iliac spine to the posterior superior iliac spine. Inferior to the superior spines, we have the inferior spines, which are called

The posterior superior iliac spine is an important landmark in the pelvis for it determines the end of the sacral canal at the level of S2. It is the point of the venus dimple in the female especially.

The iliac crest  is provided with three lips;

These lips provide attachments for muscles of the abdominal wall.

Ilium also has an iliac fossa. At its junction with the pubis in front, it is provided with an eminence called iliopubic eminence.  It articulates with other bones of the hip bone (inominate bone OS INOMINATUM) at the acetabulum.
