dc.description.abstractVarious species and ecomorphotypes of the genus Equus are recorded in several southern European Early Pleistocene local faunal assemblages (LFAs), though their taxonomy, phylogenetic relationships, and chronological distribution are still a matter of debate. This article aims to increase knowledge on the European pre-Olduvai stenonoid horses by describing and discussing the equid sample from the middle Villafranchian (Gelasian) Italian site of Coste San Giacomo (CSG; Anagni). Although horse remains from CSG are scanty, the morphological traits, dimensions, and proportions of teeth and some limb bones suggest some affinities with middle-sized European stenonoid horses, in particular with Equus senezensis, as supported by statistical analysis. This opens a new window on the possible phylogenetic relationships of the middle-sized, slender middle Villafranchian horses, although some questions about their actual taxonomic rank cannot be firmly answered based on available data. The complex relationship among environment, structure of the accompanying mammalian fauna, and the presence in the Early Pleistocene LFAs of only one equid, large or middlesized, or even of more horse species with different size is briefly discussed-
dc.description.sponsorshipThis research was funded by the Dirección General de Investigación Científica y Técnica of Spain (Project CGL2010-19116/BOS; principal investigator, M.T. Alberdi) and the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) (Sapienza University 2014 project C26A14BNRM, M.R. Palombo; Sapienza University 2011 project C26A11SNA3, R. Sardella; Sapienza University 2012 project C26A12PZA2, R. Sardella). The Soprintendenza Archeologica per il Lazio is acknowledged for the field activity and research permission. The fieldwork at CSG was supported by MIUR 6/2000 grants (respectively R. Sardella and L. Bellucci), by IsIPU and BancAnagni. We thank Luciano Bruni and all the participants who worked in the excavations and in the field activities.-
