In this study, characteristics of lime mortars and plasters from Kadıkalesi and Ayasuluk were evaluated by considering the sites, construction periods, function, contained aggregate types. Results compared with Byzantine lime mortar studies. For this purpose, basic physical properties, raw material compositions, geological features, mineralogical and chemical compositions, hydraulic and microstructural properties were determined by RILEM standard test methods, SEM-EDS, XRD and TGA. Also, possible raw material provenances used in the production of mortars and plasters were determined. According to results, pure lime and pozzolanic aggregates were used in the production of these mortars and plasters. Lime/aggregate ratios may have differed as a result of the geological origins of aggregates and raw material resources. The mortars and plasters had hydraulic properties due to the pozzolanic aggregates. Natural aggregates consisted of different types of rocks with angular forms were obtained from breccia sources found in the Menderes Massif units. The differences in mineralogical and chemical compositions revealed that different raw material sources were used in Kadıkalesi and Ayasuluk. Natural aggregates of Kadıkalesi mortars may have been obtained from the mountain slopes of Büyük Menderes containing mostly carbonate rock fragments, while those Ayasuluk's may have been obtained from the mountain slopes of Küçük Menderes containing a high percentage of volcanic particles. Brick aggregates were produced at firing temperatures between 800−900°C using clay with low Ca content. In both sites, the physical properties, chemical, mineralogical compositions and hydraulic properties of lime mortars and plasters did not change significantly according to different construction periods and location of use in the building. The differences determined in their chemical and mineralogical compositions resulted from the type of aggregates used and the diversity of raw material sources. The use of mortars and plasters with similar properties in different periods revealed that the production technology had been transferred and maintained over the centuries, also suitable sources had been consciously chosen to produce hydraulic lime mortars and plasters.
