(Chapter 6) Footnote 117:

The 1555 edition adds the following: “Because some of those who taught anatomy to boys compared these to the holes of a seive or colander, they called this bone ethmoid (h)qmoeide/j) from the image of a seive or colander. Others compared them rather to the holes of a sponge than to those of a seive, and thought the bone should be called spongoid (spoggoeide/j). But at the same time it is thin, dense in structure, and // 1555 p. 42 // as it were solid rather than spongy and loose like the inside of thick bones.
