The sea of Marmara, what Turks call Marmara Denizi, and the Greeks Propontis (Προποντίς), is truly the heart of the old Ottoman Empire, and underneath all the Turkish names, we see the faded traces of Hellenism. The name of the sea comes from the Island Marmara, named after the great marble (μάρμαρον ).
