Hipparionini   gen. et sp. indet.

A larger form seems to be slightly more common but, except for its larger size and more robust metapodials GoogleMaps   , it does not display any significant difference, except that enamel plication is perhaps stronger ( Fig. 5 View Fig. 5 A-C). The premolars GoogleMaps   are relatively slightly shorter than in the C. cf. matthewi   . The size of the metapodials would fit several late Miocene Aegean species, and I prefer not to suggest any identification.
