Byzantine == Greek.  You wouldn't really talk about a `Byzantine'
culture until the Eastern Roman Empire had reverted to using the Greek
language etc.  Until 1919, Constantinople was very much a Greek city,
and it remains the center of the Greek church.

FWIW, into the 20th century Greeks in Anatolia referred to themselves as
Romoi ( == `Romans' ) -- there was no distinction between Greek, Roman,
and Christian as identities.

There's really no need for a Byzantine ruleset, as it would be merely
duplicative of the Greek and Roman rulesets.
