Abstract

This paper reports the discovery of an exceptionally thick ash deposit of Middle Pleistocene age in western Epirus, Greece. This ash layer has not been reworked and has a chemical composition that links it to an Italian volcanic source 750 km distant. The deposit must have been produced by one of the largest Mediterranean eruptions of the past 400,000 yr and should form a distinctive marker horizon in Pleistocene deposits of southern Italy, mainland Greece, and the Aegean Sea
