The article evaluates the lithic industry from the site of Košice-Galgovec within the Eastern Linear Pottery Culture and in comparison with finds from Košice-Červený rak and Čečejovce. The finds were obtained during investment investigations in 1997 – 2000 along the route of the Myslavský stream where the settlement of the oldest phases of the Neolithic – the protolinear phase (Košice-Červený rak), Tiszadob group (Galgovec I – III), Bükk culture on both sites – was concentrated. The settlement by the Tiszadob group is found on the site of Galgovec III, feature 2/97, dated to: 6310 ± 40 BP, calibrated 5300 – 5210 BC and 6261 ± 35 BP, calibrated 5170 – 5140 BC. 654 chipped stone artefacts of the Tiszadob group were analysed as well as 28 examples of rough industry and 204 artefacts from the mixed horizon of the Tiszadob group and the early phase of the Bükk culture (feature 8/2000). Compared to older periods, obsidian was used more frequently in the Tiszadob group. The changes in the typological-technological content of the inventories probably reflect the various functions of the settlements.
