The unfleshed part of the fibula

Of the entire extent of the fibula, no part is naked and unfleshed except the outer side of its lowest part (o, p in figs. 1, 5), which is also unfleshed for some distance above the lower epiphysis. The rest of it is covered with muscles so embracing the fibula that it seems everywhere to be giving way to some and to be squeezed by others. 42
