Abstract: In 1998 a small fragment of an agamid lizard mandible was discovered among the reptile bones from the locality of Tokod. It is the first agamid remain from the Pleistocene of Hungary. The presence of this taxon indicates a warm interglacial climate and raises the possibility that the age of the locality is Eemian, i.e. older than previously thought.
