Key events of the Silurian Period.
Axis scale: millions of years ago.

In the geologic timescale, the Pridoli epoch of the Silurian period of the Paleozoic era of the Phanerozoic eon is comprehended between 423 ± 1.5 and 419.2 ± 2.8 mya (million years ago), approximately. The Pridoli epoch succeeds the Ludfordian age and precedes the Lochkovian age of the Devonian. It is named after one locality at the Homolka a Přídolí nature reserve near the Prague suburb Slivenec in the Czech Republic. Přídolí is the old name of a cadastral field area.[3]
