How many bones are conterminous to the third

The third bone [os triquetrum] enters a depression [facies] of the eighth bone [os hamatum] with a moderately protuberant but wide tubercle [hamulus ossis hamati]; from this it is readily established that this bone is conterminous with the ulna — still more to the peculiar cartilage [discus articularis] (T in figs. 1 and 2, ch. 24) of this joint — and to the second, fourth [os pisiforme], and eighth carpal bones.
