The second cavity of the ear, fodina, lies in the pars petrosa of the temporal bone, which runs forward and inward. It is an oblong body, divided into three parts, called the vestibulum, the cochlea, and the semicircular canals. The vestibulum (in which the stapes stands) is situated in the middle; the cochlea is the anterior, and lies forward and inward; and the semicircular canals, which compose the posterior part, lie backward and outward. The three parts of the labyrinth are lined by a fine periosteum, which spreads over, and shuts the two fenestra; of the tympanum.
