Kw=lon: limb, member 21

Kw=lon, a word which translators of Greek authors often use, is sometimes translated limb, sometimes member; it was applied by the Greeks to only four members: the arm, the forearm, the thigh, and the lower leg. Galen seems to have understood no other part by that word. Since I rarely or never use this word, I do not think it worth dwelling on at greater length.
