The fossil rhinoceros and hipparions from a new, Late Miocene mammalian fauna in Turkey are described. The scant material does not allow a specific determination of the latter. Various indices, often calculated on hipparion teeth and bones and believed to be phylogenetically and stratigraphically important, are critically discussed.
