Salice, Sicily 38,43 N 15.28 E            Lower Pleistocene
       "The Salice outcrop, attributed to the early Pleistocene by Bonfiglio (1969), has already been discussed by Seguenza (1876), and is situated in the Tyrrhenian zone of the Peloritani Mountains, at an elevation of about 340 m. The top of the hill, where the former Salice military fort (locality Coilare) is situated, is particularly rich in fossils, and is composed of upper bathyal sediments."
