Additional Content

The diaphysis lacks only a small chip from its anterior midshaft surface, where a post-mortem break was reglued. The distal epiphysis is perfect. The articular surface of the head for the ulnar radial facet and the annular ligament is intact only along its medial aspect, and as a result, only about three quarters of the middle of the capitular surface of the head is preserved (Trinkaus & Vandermeersch 1995).
