Up to now almost all of Java’s Early as well as  Middle Pliestocene hominids are surface finds. As a result, the relative age of determinations of these specimens are matters of speculations.

Pithecantropus C is also a surface find and obtained from the surface of the Lower Pleistocene Putjangan beds from the Sangiran area (Central Java, Indonesia). Within the encrusting matrix of the Pithecantropus mandible have been collected a fauna of smaller foraminifera. Based on comparison of this faunal assemblage with the faunal associations of small foraminifera from the Putjangan beds, the stratigraphic position of the mandible can be established and in this way its relative age is supposed to be Late Lower Pleistocene.
