ABSTRACT: A general summary of the present knowledge of the Roman marble trade is given, with particular reference to uses in architecture. The Greek background is given briefly and evidence from the literary sources is discussed. The main features of the organisation set up in the mid 1st century AD for the transport of decorative stones are examined and an appendix details the main sources of supply. General observations are made about the distributions of certain types of marble and granite.Oxford Journal of Archaeology 05/2007; 7(1):65 - 80. DOI:10.1111/j.1468-0092.1988.tb00168.x
