h5 details about discovery place In that part of the site, the layers 48 to 53 are difficult to distinguish, so, three layers have been described belonging to Riss III. S36 was found in a strongly cemented layer, containing small limestone elements embedded in a matrix of brown clay (Debénath, 1977), just under the upper stalagmitic horizon of several centimeters thick. Preservation details The body (...) is broken just behind the symphisis and the genial tubercle has been destroyed. (...) The ascending ramus is broken at right angles to its axis below the mandibular notch, so thait either the condyle ,or the coronoid process is present. (...) The mandibular angle and the posterior edge of the ascending ramus are missing. Debénath (1977) (c) Arnaud Mazurier 2004
