The artiodactyls from the early Pleistocene locality of Apollonia-1 (APL) are described and compared. The cervid Megaloceros sp., as well as the bovids Bison (Eobison) sp., Soergelia brigittae n.sp., Praeovibos sp., Pontoceros ambiguus mediterraneus n.ssp. and Caprinae indet. are recognized. A latest Villafranchian age (MNQ 20) could be suggested for the locality of Apollonia-1. The environment, during that time, has been reconstructed as a warm and dry period with seasonal rainfalls.
