Anvil, the middle of the three ossicles in the tympanum, comparable in shape to a bicuspid tooth; it has a body (corpus incudis) and two limbs or processes (crus longum and crus breve); at the tip of the long limb is a small knob, processus lenticularis, which articulates with the head of the stapes.

One of the small bones of the ear, so called from its fancied resemblance to a smith's anvil. It is situate in the cavity of the tympanum, between the malleus and orbiculare. Its body is articulated with the malleus; its horizontal ramus, which is the shortest, corresponds with the entrance of the mastoid cells; and its vertical ramus is articulated with the os orbiculare. The incus is composed of a compact tissue, and is developed from a single point of ossification.
