Rhyolitic obsidians were sampled from the Tokaj Mountains (Hungary) and the neighbouring Zemplin Hills (Slovakia) for dating by the fission track (FT) method. The FT ages are found to cluster around 10 and 15 Ma, respectively. On this basis 'Carpathian' obsidians can be clearly distinguished from their Mediterranean counterparts. Three types of artifacts have been identified: two with sources in the Zemplin Hills and the third with a source in the Tokaj Mountains.
