Marble analysis, 4793


Water spout in the shape of a lion's head

Cream limestone
Limestone origin: Rhodes (Greece)


Microfacies: biosparite
Bioclasts: shell fragments of molluscs and red algae fragments 

When the artefact was made in the country of its discovery locality, the importation of this limestone is not realistic as the subsoil of Rhodes contains such rocks.
