TK>>     Isn't Konstatnitopolis was Byzant city? I think taht is better to

TK> Byzantine == Greek.  You wouldn't really talk about a `Byzantine'

    I Know, I'm from Serbia :) Ok, i just want to say that that was no official
greek state. :)

TK> FWIW, into the 20th century Greeks in Anatolia referred to themselves as

TK> There's really no need for a Byzantine ruleset, as it would be merely

    Maybe.. but.. It was an independent empire called Byzantine.. Not Greece..
It was a empire with Roman state organization.. Senate etc. but with eastern
influence.. (Greece, Egypt, Persia...)... Remember.. Justinian coded Roman Law
as we know nowadays..
