Naxos is almost as well-known for its ancient marble as neighbor, Paros. The Terrace of Lions at Delos and the marble sphinx at Delphi were both of Naxian marble. 15 km east of the main port of Chora, are the ancient marble quarries at Fleuris. There are two giant 6.4 meters kouroi still lying in an unfinshed state among the olive trees here. Statues were roughed out in the quarries and then sent, finished or unfinished to their final destinations. These kouroi were never finished for unknown reasons and have lain here for millenia since. Probably something to do with an overdrawn VISA card?
