The stapes are a pair of small bones, one in each inner ear. They are the smallest bones in the body. They are involved in the transmission of sound from the eardrum to the cochlea and are attached to the latter at the "oval window". They are shaped like a stirrup (stapes being the Latin for stirrup).
