Biometrical studies on ancient skeletal series and comparison with modern people by using radiological methods are

quite limited in Turkey. Previous studies showed that measurements obtained from orthopantomographs are highly correlated

with the actual size of the bones. The aim of the present study is to determine the possible change in gonial angle

over time in ancient Anatolian populations with the present. Also an aim was attempted to demonstrate the symmetry of

the gonial angle in the jaws and the sexual dimorphism. Gonial angle values right and left were taken from 267 Turkish

adults with no craniomandibular disorders, orthodontic history or treatment by using panoramic radiographs. Data

of the past populations were collected from previous studies. Comparison between right and left sides and the sexual differences

were tested by paired student t-test and discriminant analyses were conducted. The results showed that there

were no significant differences between the right and left gonial angles of the individuals but there was a significant difference

at the left gonial angle between sexes p
