Anococcygeal Nerves: The fifth sacral nerve receives a communicating filament from the fourth, and unites with the coccygeal nerve to form the coccygeal plexus. From this plexus the anococcygeal nerves take origin; they consist of a few fine filaments which pierce the sacrotuberous ligament to supply the skin in the region of the coccyx. Latin is an ancient Indo-European language originally spoken in the region around Rome called Latium. ...

The Sacrotuberous Ligament (great or posterior sacrosciatic ligament) is situated at the lower and back part of the pelvis. ... The coccyx is formed of four fused vertebrae. ...
