Material: Undefined white marble

Distinguishing between white marble by eye is almost impossible. Certain marbles have distinguishing characteristics - like the grey stripes in Prokonnesian or the golden tint to Pentelic - but these are generally unreliable indicators. Archaeometric methods, chemical and petrographic, offer more reliable basis for identification but since not all monuments have been tested with these relatively expensive methods many can only be identified as 'white marble'.
