This paper reports, for the first time, the occurrence of an ash layer intercalated within the Plio-Pleistocene lacustrine deposits near Xylokastro area, North Peloponnesus, Greece. Petrographic and geochemical characteristics of the ash layer are the basis of this study. An attempt was made to correlate the present findings to the reported data from other ash deposits. The composition of the ash bed showed a dacitic to rhyolitic calc alkaline suit. The geochemistry of the volcanic ash indicates high crustal contamination of the lava and points to an origin from the northwest part of the Aegean volcanic arc. (EN)
