pass on the inside over the far end

The tibialis anterior muscle is a dorsal flexor of the foot. It is an elongated, spindle-shaped muscle located on the front of the lower leg. It arises from the surface of the tibia to pass on the inside over the far end of the tibia, and attaches to bones of the ankle and foot. Contraction of the tibialis anterior causes dorsiflexion and inversion of the foot.

Does that mean that this muscle enters inside when it arrives to far end of the tibia?

    A Google image search yields plenty of pictures like this one and this one. It seems the Tib Ant starts at the knee on the outboard side of the leg, and runs the length of the tibia, crossing in front of it to end at the inboard side of the ankle.
