According to Turkish Museums, the ancient Roman and Byzantine castle destroyed by Turkey’s earthquake changed into its current form during the time of Byzantine Emperor Justinian (527-565 C.E.). The castle was originally built in the 4th century C.E. by the Roman emperor Constantine I, and was later expanded by Justinian. It served as an important fortress for the Byzantines against Muslim attacks, and was one of the most heavily fortified castles in the Eastern Roman Empire. The castle was finally abandoned in the 13th century C.E., after it was conquered by the Seljuk Turks.
