Analiz diskretno-var'iruiushchikh priznakov i stepeni razvitiia myshechnogo rel'efa na postkranial'nom skelete zhitelei Faiiumskogo oazisa (Egipet) greko-rimskogo vremeni [Analysis of discretely varying signs and the degree of development of muscle relief on the postcranial skeleton of Greco-Roman inhabitants of Fayum oasis (Egypt)]
The article is devoted to the review of osteoscopic data of the Fayum oasis population in Greco-Roman period. Authors consider both discretely varying signs on the bones of the postcranial skeleton and the development of muscle relief. There is a strong development of muscle relief in the male population, which might probably be explained by the hard work of military service. There is also a number of morphological features of the scapulae, pelvic bones and forearm bones.
