Abstract

The Kalodiki fen is a 2-km[2] mire in a small basin within a tectonic depression in Epirus, western Greece. The basin has accumulated as much as 9 m of peat and a tephra layer appears in cores at depths ranging from 2.9 to 5.7 m. The likely age of the tephra, its index of refraction, and its mineralogical and chemical characteristics display strong similarities to tephra from the Campanian province of Italy. Mineralogically similar tephra layers have also been reported from a peat deposit at Philippi, in northeastern Greece
