The Oligocene Epoch is in the Paleogene Period, coming before the Eocene Epoch.

(previously considered as the Tertiary Period, which overlapped the Neogene and Paleogene)

It was about 34 to 23 million years ago.

The Oligocene was from about 37.5 million to 26 million years ago. It is part of the Tertiary Period and the Cenozoic Era.
