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."

"Byzantine fleet" - This is what the people called the Ottoman fleet during the Turkish occupation.

One can see the negative memory of the Byzantine rule reflected in the collective memory of the people (the document seems to be referring to the island of Samos, and area of Izmir).



Also, the Turks were "shaking off attacks of the Labs (Λιάπηδες)" coming from Samos, meaning the Samian attacks of the Asia Minor beach. Historically the Labs were Albanians and followers of the Orthodox Church but many converted to Islam during Ottomon rule, with the bulk of conversion occurring in the 18th century.

Julian was Roman Emperor from 361 to 363.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_(emperor)

This is what Julian himself stated:

... I myself am descended from the Mysians, who are absolutely inelegant, boorish, austere, uncivilized, and obstinately tenacious of their opinions, - all which are people of lamentable rusticity.

"Vlachogoths" (Valagothi)

Nennius was a 9th-century Welsh writer who wrote the Latin work Historia Brittonum. The interesting thing about this story is that it defines the Ostrogoths of Italy as "Vlachogoths" (Valagothi = Goths of "Vlachia" or Italy; we know of the Polish term Włochy for Italy), a term that Nennius almost certainly borrowed from the Germanic-speaking Saxons. In the minds of the Germanic-speaking peoples, Italy was the primitive "Vlachia" because it is the cradle of the Roman Empire, and Latin-speakers.

17 Aliud experimentum inveni de isto Bruto ex veteribus libris veterum nostrorum. tres filii Noe diviserunt orbem in tres partes post diluvium. Sem in Asia, Cham in Africa, Iafeth in Europa dilataverunt terminos suos. primus homo venit ad Europam de genere Iafeth Alanus cum tribus filiis suis, quorum nomina sunt Hessitio, Armenon, Negue. Hessitio autem habuit filios quattuor: hi sunt Francus, Romanus, Britto, Albanus. Armenon autem habuit quinque filios: Gothus, Valagothus, Gebidus, Burgundus, Longobardus. Negue autem habuit tres filios: Vandalus, Saxo, Boguarus. ab Hisitione autem ortae sunt quattuor gentes Franci, Latini, Albani et Britti. ab Armenone autem quinque: Gothi, Valagothi, Gebidi, Burgundi, Longobardi. a Neguio vero quattuor Boguarii, Vandali, Saxones et Turingi. istae autem gentes subdivisae sunt per totam Europam. Alanus autem, ut aiunt, filius fuit Fetebir, filii Ougomun, filii Thoi, filii Boib, filii Simeon, filii Mair, filii Ethach, filii Aurthach, filii Echthet, filii Oth, filii Abir, filii Ra, filii Ezra, filii Izrau, filii Baath, filii Iobaath, filii Iovan, filii Iafeth, filii Noe, filii Lamech, filii Matusalae, filii Enoch, filii Iareth, filii Malalehel, filii Cainan, filii Enos, filii Seth, filii Adam, filii dei vivi. hanc peritiam inveni ex traditione veterum.




Walhakurne = Roman/Gallic grain

*Walhaz is a reconstructed Proto-Germanic word meaning "Roman", "Romance-speaker", or "Celtic-speaker".

It is attested in the Roman Iron Age from an inscription on one of the Tjurkö bracteates, where walhakurne "Roman/Gallic grain" is apparently a kenning for "gold" (referring to the bracteate itself). The Tjurkö 1 bracteate is dated to the Germanic Iron Age between 400 and 650 AD.

There is a consensus that walha-kurne is a compound word referring to the bracteate itself, and that walha (cognate with Modern English Welsh) means "foreign, non-Germanic" - here perhaps more specifically "Roman" or "Gallic."
