This was probably a Laudakia stellio, a relatively large lizard that inhabits rock outcrops, ruins and even the walls of houses in western Turkey and elsewhere.
I saw this one on one of the surviving walls of Magnesia on the Meander last July in Turkey. They are quite skittish, as are most lizards, and quickly disappear inside a crevice as soon as they spot an approaching human.
A telephoto lens would have produced a better picture, but I didn't have one with me.
