The Goektepe marbles, white, black and two-toned, corroborated by archaeological studies and evidences and by scientific archaeometrical studies have been published in several previous paper on the most renowned international journals, but the idea to publish a monographic volume is based on the suggestion that this kind of publication can emphasize the importance of the Goektepe marble, in fact, the new Roman imperial sculptural marble. The large and intensive field research changed completely our knowledge about Roman marble quarries in ancient Asia Minor, due to the unexpected discovery of more than 30 exploitation sites of roman times. The importance of these quarries consists in the fact that the produced marbles were all intended to be export marbles to be destined not only to other foreign cities of the Roman Empire, but mainly to Rome.
