PART II- THE USE OF THE MARBLE DURING THE LATER,

PARTICULARLY THE 19TH TO 20TH CENTURIES

Most of the major cities of the former Roman Empire contained some of the Karystian cipollino either of primary use or reused later in the building of churches, basilicas and mosques. Lazzarini gives a list of the cities where columns or fragments of the cipollino are to be found either in primary or secondary use. Other authorities on the spread of the marble throughout the Roman Empire also make similar references. It would have been impossible to follow up all these references. In some cases when visiting these places there have been no signs of cipollino. In other cases there has been marble where there have been no references. Part I of the report has followed up a wide range of these examples.
This section of the report deals largely with the references to the use of cipollino quarried in the late 19th and early 20th centuries from the original Karystian quarries used in Roman times. They were so numerous that it was considered necessary to make it into a separate Part II.
