It is not. Marbled is elongated in such a way that it causes rosettes to form when combined with the spotted modifier. Spotted over classic tabby results in the Ocicat pattern. All marbled tabby are classic, only some classic tabbies are marbled, imo.Marbled is the same pattern as classic. No sense in splitting hairs
Yes. Marbled is modified classic. Hence all marbled is classic, but only some classic is marbled. There are distinct visual differences between the two, as well as they way the pattern develops, quite possibly tied to some intrinsic aspect of bengals having ALC ancestry.Bengal cats get their 'marbling' from domestic cats....hence why it is the same pattern. Breeders may try to breed for more horizontal stripes but changing the name from classic to marble - an egg is still an egg. Just like a blue cat is still grey.
they’re not breeding for horizontal stripes, that isn’t what flow means.Breeders may try to breed for more horizontal stripes

The first pick the light it’s kind of hard to see. .. I think marbled is also used to refer to the typical classic tabby pattern and has been in the past- especially British shorthairs.
Need a photo in good natural lighting to determine colour. Most likely a blue classic tabby with white. Marble is the term for the elongated classic pattern exclusive to Bengals.
Tabby isn’t a breed, it’s a pattern. She’s a domestic shorthair, i.e. has no breed ancestry in any significant capacity
