Abstract

Publications on the Green Mosque, built by Sultan Mehmed I the Celebi, mention the use of spolia from the Byzantine period but do not give information on the definition or location of these pieces. Therefore, this paper points out the spolia from the Byzantine period used in the Green Mosque, a well-studied topic in the Ottoman architecture and is well known thanks to its inscriptions, and evaluates the pieces.
