    Hello Apostoulos,

     

    “Horn coral. Horn coral, any coral of the order Rugosa, which first appeared in the geologic record during the Ordovician Period, which began <b>488 million years ago</b>; the Rugosa persisted through the Permian Period, which ended <b>251 million years ago</b>. (Britannica Encyclopedia)”  I know virtually next to nothing about Crete geology.  If I read this 1996 reference correctly  ( http://www.uqac.ca/mhiggins/chapters.html )  It seems like the geology of this area is much younger except for maybe the Permian Period.   Let me know what you find out about the Vatos unit.  I live in Maine, USA.  Perhaps the Natural History Museum of Crete can help.  http://www.nhmc.uoc.gr/   or http://www.nhmc.uoc.gr/en
