What does apex mean?

We define apex in several ways: “the uppermost point,” “the narrowed or pointed tip,” “the point of sharpest curvature in a path,” and “the highest or culminating point.”

The earliest use of the word, beginning in the 16th century and now quite obsolete, was “a small rod at the top of a flamen’s cap” (a flamen is a type of priest, especially one in ancient Rome).
