Roman trade in white marble from Mani

A recent paper published in Archaeometry by Maniatis, Tambakopoulos, Lazzarini and Sturgeon suggests that a collection of three unique marble sculptures from Roman period Corinth were likely imported from Mani. While it was once thought that Mani stone was only of local importance, this study further confirms that Mani white marble was used beyond the southern Peloponnesian peninsula.  To learn more, read the early online publication at Maniatis, Y., Tambakopoulos, D, Lazzarini, L., and Sturgeon, M.C., 2001. Archaeometry. doi: 10.1111/arcm.12647
