This contribution aims at presenting the first results of the analytical work conducted on plaster and mortar samples collected from the Hellenistic Theatre in Nea Paphos. A set of analysis – including petrography, SEM, x-ray fluorescence and diffraction, and thermal analysis – was carried out in order to assess the composition of the selected materials, and to trace out eventual diachronic and synchronic evolutions in the plaster technologies employed for the construction, furnishing and aesthetic decoration of this relevant public building. The chronological frame of the study spans from the Hellenistic period, foundation horizon for the construction of the first stage, to the III century AD.
