Bastion \Bas"tion\ (b[a^]s"ch[u^]n; 106), n. [F. bastion (cf.
It. bastione), fr. LL. bastire to build (cf. F. b[^a]tir, It.
bastire), perh. from the idea of support for a weight, and
akin to Gr. basta`zein to lift, carry, and to E. baston,
A work projecting outward from the main inclosure of a
fortification, consisting of two faces and two flanks, and so
constructed that it is able to defend by a flanking fire the
adjacent curtain, or wall which extends from one bastion to
another. Two adjacent bastions are connected by the curtain,
which joins the flank of one with the adjacent flank of the
other. The distance between the flanks of a bastion is called
the gorge. A lunette is a detached bastion. See Ravelin.
