How many bones are conterminous to the second

The second bone [os lunatum] (which is as much smaller than the first as it is itself larger than the third) 41 is connected to the first and the seventh bones as we have just said, and to the third [os triquetrum] it is attached by a broad connection via arthrodia 42 [ll. intercarpalia interossea]; thus the second 43 bone is joined to the radius and three carpal bones, to wit the first, seventh, and third, and it also not much removed from the eighth [os hamatum].
