Abstract

In this work, the Middle Pleistocene mammal assemblage from Ponte Molle, a historical locality of the urban area ofRome, has been revised together with a review of the stratigraphical succession of the deposit. This allows us to reconstructthe provenance of the fossil material and to provide chronological constrains trough the correlation with the lithostatigraphic and syn-themic units of the national geological cartography and the geochronologically-constrained aggradational units of the Paleo-Tiber reported in literature. The paleontological study together with the geological and stratigraphical review allow us to redefine the Ponte Molle deposit and its Middle Pleistocene faunal assemblage. In its new look, the age of the faunal assemblage from Ponte Molle could be referred to a time span ranging from 550 ka to 450
