A’va,
 
in Burmah, has marble quarries of which idols are made, and only priests are allowed to trade there. (Symes, vol. ii. p. 376.)   1
       
“As on Ava’s snore,
       
Where none but priests are privileged to trade
In that best marble of which gods are made.”
       
T. Moore: Lalla Rookh, part 1.
