It is often "emphasized" by many how (ancient) Byzantium was colonized by the Greeks from Megara in 657 BC, however:

- The first name of the city was Lygos according to Pliny the Elder in his historical accounts. It was founded by Thracian tribes between the 13th and 11th centuries BC, along with the neighbouring fishing village of Semistra.

- Lygos and Semistra were the only settlements on the European side of Constantinople. On the Asian side there was a Phoenician colony. On the site of Lygos, the later Byzantium was located, thus Lygos is accepted as the city which gave rise to Constantinople.

At length, we are aware of the Alexander I episode and his claims; it is unfortunate the story of Emperor Anastasius has been "buried".

Emperor Anastasius (491-518) was a native of the city of Dyrrachion. To prove his (ethnic) Romanness, Anastasius claimed that he was biologically descended from a General of the Republic: he put it about that he was a descendant of Pompey the Great.

Unrelated to Anastasius but from the same book below:
- Some Arab writers also called the inhabitants of the western half of the former Roman empire Rum as well.
- The Tzakones were nothing more than provincial Romans.
- Arabs lived on Cyprus in the "condominium" phase (the period of division of sovereignty between the Umayyads and the Romans, when Cyprus was labeled a condominium).

"Provincial Syriac texts from the sixth century tell the same story. The Church of Zeugma, in Mesopotamia, wrote a letter to the Church of Edessa about an omen that concerned "you, us, and all the Romans" (a goose had laid an egg with the inscription "the Romans will conquer"). This letter was then copied into the so-called chronicle of Pseudo-Joshua the Stylite, a Syriac text written by an official in Edessa that is as straightforwardly pro-Roman as any Greek or Latin history written in Constantinople. It proves that members of a local church on the fringes of empire saw their fates entwined with the victories of the Roman armies and considered themselves and their fellow provincials to be Romans."

- Page 76, "Romanland", A. Kaldellis
