  26. The lips are composed of different muscular fasciculi, nerves, and vessels, covered by the skin and mucous membrane of the mouth. They circumscribe the anterior aperture of that cavity; and are inservient to mastication, pronunciation, etc. They are distinguished into upper and lower- Anocheilon; and Catocheilon, (Prov.) Fipple- and are placed in front of each jaw, forming between them the anterior aperture of the mouth. They unite at each side, and form what are called the angles or commissures of the mouth- Chalini. Their free edge is covered with a mucous membrane, of a more or less livid red, according to the individual. They receive their arteries from the external carotid. Their veins open into the two jugulars. Their lymphatic vessels descend into the ganglions situate beneath the chin. Their nerves are derived from the infra-orbitar, mental, and facial.
