Marble origin: Paros (Paros-Choriodaki) (Greece) or Marmara (Turkey)?
Maximum grain size (MGS): 1.75 mm
δ18OV-PDB: -3.00 ‰
δ13CV-PDB: 2.53 ‰
Cathodoluminescence color: blue
Cathodoluminescence intensity: weak
Cathodoluminescence distribution: homogeneous
The isotopic values are situated in the Paros and Marmara fields, two marbles with blue luminescence. It seems most probable that this statue was carved from a marble of Paros-Choriodaki, but we do not exclude an origin of Marmara.
