The Meningeal Branches of the ascending pharyngeal artery are several small vessels, which supply the dura mater.

One, the posterior meningeal, passes through the mastoid foramen before entering the cranium via the jugular foramen.

A second passes through the foramen lacerum.

Occasionally a third through the canal for the hypoglossal nerve.
