At Olympia, the Temple of Zeus was built of a coarse shelly limestone extracted south of the Alpheios River, with its metopes, pedimental sculpture, and roof finished in Parian marble (Paus. 1; Higgins and Higgins 1996: 68). Where marble was present, it naturally became the preferred material for sculpture and architecture. The island of Naxos is known for a pure white, coarse‐grained marble, and unfinished statues can still be seen in two ancient quarries, at Flerio (Melanes) and Apollonia. Neighboring Paros produced an especially fine white marble, ancient Lychnites.

At Corinth, Rhodes, and Syracuse, building stone was quarried very near its ultimate destination. Corinth exploited the oolitic limestone of fossil dunes that traverse the area. Extensive quarries have been explored to west and east, and evidence of quarrying is plainly visible all around the Archaic temple at the center of the site (Lolos 2002; Hayward 2003). Corinthian quarries produced a surplus, and the use of Corinthian stone at Epidauros and Delphi is well attested (Lolos 2002: 206). Long‐distance trade in high‐quality marble is evident from the sixth century forward.
