We report a major olistostromal event situated around the Priabonian/Rupelian boundary. It is manifested in the island of Samothraki simultaneously with the development of a carbonate reef, preceded and followed by flyschoid sedimentation. Olistostrome formation of approximately the same age is observed also in the SE part of the island of Lemnos. Comparisons with the Thracian basin and the Rhodopes hint at the links of olistostrome and mélange formation with an episode of carbonatic sedimentation brusquely disturbed by increased tectonic activity of regional importance.
