in response to reader comment: The transcending character of the Greek dimension

German Historian Hieronymus Wolf wrote a book about the fall of Istanbul in 1557 """"" Corpus Historiae Byzantinæ """"" ".

brits and Frenches created a Byzantion Empire in 1821 with this book.

You can not see any Byzantion on the ruins monuments and old cities of the East Roman Empire.

Some people used to speak Greek in the palaces and cities.

But this never shows that they were all Greeks.

Arabicand Persian was spoken largely during the Ottoman Empire in the palaces and some elite communities .

Who can say that Ottomans were Arabs or Persians.

Konstantin the Greek was not even Greek.

He was East Roman his real name was ""Gaius Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus""" and he was Albanian like your savior(!)in 1821.

Konstantinopolis was not Konstantinopolis and it was Nea Roma.

Konstantin was not even Greek .

He was not even Orthodox.

He was not even Christian.

He was a pagan albanian roman.

He used Apollon the Roman god in the moneys and he used his portrait as ""Sol Victius"""Sun God.
He was baphtished by the thief prists after his death

as a normal Klephtocratic Greek habit.
