Lemma 14.19.14. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category with finite limits. Let $X \in \mathop{\mathrm{Ob}}\nolimits (\mathcal{C})$. The functor $\mathcal{C}/X \to \mathcal{C}$ commutes with the coskeleton functors $\text{cosk}_ k$ for $k \geq 1$.

**Proof.**
The statement means that if $U$ is a simplicial object of $\mathcal{C}/X$ which we can think of as a simplicial object of $\mathcal{C}$ with a morphism towards the constant simplicial object $X$, then $\text{cosk}_ k U$ computed in $\mathcal{C}/X$ is the same as computed in $\mathcal{C}$. This follows for example from Categories, Lemma 4.16.2 because the categories $(\Delta /[n])_{\leq k}$ for $k \geq 1$ and $n \geq k + 1$ used in Lemma 14.19.2 are connected. Observe that we do not need the categories for $n \leq k$ by Lemma 14.19.3 or Lemma 14.19.4.
