Wikipedia Abstract

Graecopithecus freybergi is a hominid known only by a single fragment of skull from 1944. The mandible with a (tertiary molar) m3 that is very worn, the root of a (secondary molar) m2 and a fragment of a (premolar) p3 is from the Tour la Reine site and is dated from the late Miocene. Excavation of the site is not possible (1986) due to the owner having built a swimming pool on the location. The mandible was found on the Greek mainland at Pyrgos Vassilissis, north west of Athens.
