Constantinople

On 11 May 330 the city of Constantinople was dedicated. 5 years earlier Constantine I had ordered the ancient Greek city of Byzantium to be rebuilt for the new capital of the Roman Empire, and he had the city named after himself. This laid the foundation of the Byzantine empire, which survived the final fall of the western empire by another 1000 years. Series of coins were issued from 330-348 AD to commemorate the movement of the capital from Rome to Constantinople, and to recognize the city of Rome as the traditional center of the empire.
