Lime based plaster and mortar specimens from three different locations of Smyrna Agora excavations have been investigated within the scope of this study. A two-layer graffito plaster from Basilica (P1 inner layer, P2 outer layer) and two distinctive mortars from Bouleuterion were collected from the site. While one of the Bouleuterion mortars was masonry mortar from walls (BWM), other one was from the floor blockade (BBM - porous mortar).
