Trade Concession: Marble
- 10 marble
Pompey’s victories and gains during the final campaigns of the Third Mithridatic War secured four new provinces for Rome, Bithynia et Pontus, Cilicia, Crete, and Syria. With this newfound access to the treasures of the east, the face of Rome changed. Alongside traditional white stone, new and exotic marbles began to flood into the Republic. Quarries in the east offered a wide array of colours, from blacks and greys, to greens, reds, yellows, and blues.
