Specimen Data (Morphology)

The facial morphology of this specimen is missing, but the brain case is complete. Like the other Dmanisi specimens, this individual's cranium can be described as fairly small, with a cranial capacity of 775cm3. Other notable features are the large brow ridge and very deep nuchal lines. Paleoanthropologists suspect this individual could be considered a male, based on these characteristics.
