Fossil tusk discovered in Florina mine

Featured Fossil tusk discovered in Florina mine

A fossil tusk was discovered on Wednesday at the mine of Amyntaion, Florina, by employees of the Public Power Corporation which operates the site, when they were clearing earth from a landslide. 

The tusk, almost 2m in length, is in very good condition and has been transferred to the Paleontological-Historical Museum of Ptolemaida. The Ephorate of Palaeoanthropology and Speleology will examine the finding in situ and perform conservation on the tusk.
