Ulna and radius

Lest the homonymy obscure our account, whenever we mention this structure of two bones with its ligaments, veins, arteries, nerves, membranes, and skin, we have judged it best to use the word cubitus or forearm [antebrachium], and we shall call the lower bone the ulna and the upper 19 (all of figs. 3 and 4, or X in the second skeletal fig.) the radius throughout our account — as we have already been distinguishing them. These two bones are long, and they are different from each other nearly everywhere.
