Abstract
A whole specimen, not reworked and well preserved of Cladocora caespitosa has been found within the marine Quaternary deposits, outcropping along the eastern coast of the Capo San Marco Promontory. The U/Th dating of this sample has provided a minimum age of 70 ± 4 ka B.P. This dating allows to state that these marine deposits, containing the coral, are not Holocene in age.
