This is the first study of the particularly interesting network of quarries and roads in southern Euboea. The quarries were a major source of Cippolino marble in Roman times. The study presents a survey and examination of the quarries and roads serving them and analyses of samples of marble collected there. The inaccessibility of the quarries has meant that they and the road systems around them have been unusually well preserved, but also that existing literature on the area is scanty and far from accurate. The material discussed here is of great historical, economic and technological significance. The preliminary mapping and registration offered here is of further value in the attempt to save the materials from further deterioration and destruction.
