The forearm

The entire part (A, B in figs. 1 and 2; T, V in the skeletal figs.) [antebrachium] between the humerus and the carpus is called ph/xuj by the Greeks and cubitus by the Latins. It consists of two bones that rest upon each other and are articulated together; the lower (all of fig. 5 and 6, or Y in the second skeletal fig.) [ulna], which is also the longer, is also called ph/xuj and cubitus.
