The difficulty of distinguishing between loose first and second mandibular molars of domestic cattle (Bos taurus) from archaeological sites is well-known. This paper proposes cervical length as a discrimatory measure. The possibility that cervical measurements of first and second mandibular molars may be sexually dimorphic is also explored.
