Abstract (in english)
   This paper concerns the treatment of the osteological finds from Miocene localities: Dolnice near Cheb (MN 4b), Ahníkov-Merkur (MN 3a) and Františkovy Lázně (MN 5). Anchitherium was a medium- sized three-finger horse with brachiodontal dentition, which inhabited forest territories and lived on sift nourishement. The osteological material contains separate teeth as well as complete rows of teeth on fragments of jaw-bones and also parts of skeleton. These are mostly limb bones and are very well-preserved. There is a unique find of part of a skeleton of rear extremity including small hoofs (phalanx III). The osteological material was processed osteometrically. I have measured teeth and the bones of extremities. The obtained data have been processed statistically. I have compared the obtained data from all localities both with each other and with the data from available literature
