Voilà, the first major contribution to my website in about a year: thirty pages on Constantinople. Interested in the Greek origins? Go here. Constantine’s city? Here is your page. Photos of the impressive land walls? Here you are. The full Latin text of the Notitia Urbis Constantinopolitanae is here, the Bosphorus has not been forgotten, and the photos of the Mosaic Museum are here. And if you want to have an overview of all pages – it’s here. Enjoy; I enjoyed my holiday.

    Memory is faint, but didn’t the Notitia also appear in the Monumenta Germania Historia?

    But it’s lovely to have it online, and would be even nicer with a translation! Such sources bring us very close to the data. Five palaces in Constantinople… hmm.

    Probably; but the text I used was Seeck’s.
