(From incudo, to strike upon). The anvil. The name of one of the bones in the ear; named from its resemblance to an anvil. It is broader than it is thick; articulated with the malleus, behind the manubrium, from whence a short thick process projects backwards, and a long one downwards, which runs down parallel to the long process of the malleus, but rather more backward. The short process is thick at its beginning, but ends in a point, which is turned backwards, and joined to the edge of the opening of the cellulae mastoideae. The long process at its extremity is rather bent inwards, by which we may distinguish the incus of one ear from that of the other; for, turning the short process backwards, and the long process downwards, if the bending in of the long leg be towards the left hand, it belongs to the right car, and vice versa.
