Front Engine Cover Gasket?

I got my car back from the mechanic today and on the inspection report it says I have an oil leak, and said it's the "Front Engine Cover Gasket" but I am not sure exactly where that would be located.

I do not have any oil spots on my driveway, and I don't see any oil residue anywhere on the motor. What should I be looking for?

Also, is this the same as a head gasket? Or is this just the top engine gasket or something instead?

sounds like it would be your timing cover gasket. it'll be in front of your engine..(or pass side) behind serpentine belt.

Thanks, just confirmed it's the timing cover gasket. I am not getting any dripping to the ground, but I do see some fresh oil in the area in the area. What should this cost to replace? I am getting wildly different quotes from different shops, the dealership wants $660, the local guy down the road wants $370, and the mobile guy wants $110 + parts which seems insanely low.
