Etymology
From Anglo-Norman and OF. marbre, from L. marmor, from AGr. polytonic|μάÏμαÏÎ¿Ï (perhaps related to polytonic|μαÏμάÏÎµÎ¿Ï âgleamingâ). Much of the early classical marble came from the 'Marmaris' sea above the Aegean. The forms from French replaced Old English marma, which had already been borrowed directly from the Latin.
