The approximate date of the earliest potsherds found so far at Labraunda; they were found during the excavation of the Temple Terrace to the east of the Temple of Zeus.

The date of the earliest architectural fragments, possibly belonging to a predecessor of the Classical Temple of Zeus. At that time the sanctuary consisted of only one small terrace to the east of the later temple.

The battle of Labraunda, when the Persians defeated the Karians, the Milesians and their allies.

The Hekatomnid period, when most buildings were erected: Andron B and the North Stoa were built by Maussollos (377-353/2); the Temple of Zeus, the Oikoi Building, the South Propylon, the Doric Building and probably also Andron A were built by Idrieus (351-344).

The Hellenistic period: there was almost no building activity.

The priesthood at Labraunda, which was apparently hereditary and for life, was probably held by the same family for at least ca. 150 years starting in the later 4th century. Names of high priests were Korris and Hekatomnos.

The high priest Korris complains to king Seleukos II that Mylasa has unlawfully kept revenues and sacred land belonging to the sanctuary.

Olympichos, strategos of Seleukos II and later independent dynast at Alinda, takes the part of Mylasa against the priest of Labraunda, and at the end the sanctuary is incorporated in to Mylasa.

The Roman imperial period.

Tiberios Klaudios Menelaos, probably a wealthy citizen of Mylasa, builds the East Bath.

Titos Flavios Neon, former priest at Labraunda, builds an undressing room in the East Bath, and a new roof of a porch (possibly of the Oikoi building).

Poleites, former priest at Labraunda, mak es a complete rebuilding of the front of the North Stoa with Corinthian columns.

The end of the ancient pagan cult and the beginning of the Christian period. A church is built between the entrance buildings.
