A radiocarbon dating was made for the molluscan fossils (Cyclina sinensis) collected from the upper part of the alluvial marine deposits of the Seno River Delta, Kaita-cho, Hiroshima Prefecture. The molluscan fossils were contained in a granule sand bed, at a 5.5 meters below sea lever. The age obtained (3140 .+-. 120 y. B.P.) is consistent with the former estimation that the forset bed in the Seno River Delta was accumulated during latestage of the Jomon Transgression.
