Remains of animal footprints, presumably belonging to deer, antelope and horse, were found in Sebastia. Lecturer Dr. Levent Mesci at the Faculty of Geological Engineering, Cumhuriyet University,  reports that the fossils are 23-33 million years old.

As a find belonging to the Oligocene period, this is considered to be the first in Western Armenia. From the point of view of contributing to the biochronology of Oligocene, we can emphasize that it is scientifically possible.
