Reconstruction of ancient people's lives can be accomplished by studying their dental remains. They present a valuable source of information about the type of food people ate, illnesses they suffered from, and social stratification within a community. Analysed dental remains refer to the antique period, between the 3rd and the 5th century. Romans lived in Cibale, current Vinkovci. The purpose of this study was to collect detailed dental information about Romans who lived in Vinkovci and to evaluate the pathology which included presence of dental caries, antemortem tooth loos and surface wear. Sex determinations were made according to cranial morphology. Age determinations were based on eruption status in children and tooth wear patterns in adults. The analysed sample was well preserved and consisted of the dental remains of 100 individuals with total of 2728 teeth. The prevalence of carious teeth was 4, 4%. The prevalence of antemortem tooth loss was 3, 9%. Most of the examined teeth showed moderate amount of surface wear. According to recorded pathological changes on jaws, it can be concluded that the ancient inhabitans from Vinkovci were mainly agriculturists with diet based on cereals.
