Abstract: Let $ K/\mathbf {Q}$ be an abelian extension and let $ D$ be the absolute value of the discriminant of $ K$. We show that for each $ \epsilon > 0$, the smallest rational prime that splits completely in $ K$ is $ O(D^{\frac 14+\epsilon })$. Here the implied constant depends only on $ \epsilon $ and the degree of $ K$. This generalizes a theorem of Elliott, who treated the case when $ K/\mathbf {Q}$ has prime conductor.
