Аннотация. This article reports the results of odontoscopical and odontometrical analyses of Mesolithic remains from Mayak (burial 3): a mandible with permanent teeth of an individual aged 20-25 years, from a paired burial in the Samara region, near to the village of Sidelkino, brought to light by excavations conducted
by archaeologist D.А. Stashenkov. The morphological characteristics of the teeth from Mayak 3 were categorized into archaic and progressive groups in order to defne the evolutionary phase of these remains: archaic, interjacent or postarchaic. The ratio of various traits allowed us to describe the odontological variant from Mayak 3 as postarchaic. The samples from Mayak
3 predominantly had Western odontological trunk traits, reﬂecting characteristics of intraspecifc differentiation within the given regions during the Mesolithic. With reference to odontometrical indicators, there was a tendency towards a reduction in the mandibular molar mesiodistal diameter in this subject, affecting to a lesser extent vestibulolingual parameters.
