The lower leg: tibia

In the lower leg 14 as in the forearm there are situated two bones (all of fig. 1 and 2 and F and Y to L and W in the skeletons), which Hippocrates always calls “bones of the tibia.” One of these (all of figs. 3, 4) is inner and thicker, which is called by the name of the entire limb knh/mh and tibia.
