Bones conterminous to the eighth

The eighth bone [os hamatum] enters the seventh and the third more or less like a wedge, and is attached to those two: to the seventh, in the manner we have just explained, while it admits the third into a depression carved out in itself. Besides these two carpal bones, it is attached also to the metacarpal bones that lie below the ring finger and the little finger. So this bone too is conterminous with four bones.
