A fine representation of Constantinople (aerial view). I do not know the creator, although I’m thinking of a French artist who is an expert on this topic. Felicitations to the creator for his work.

This aerial view gives us some generic picture on the urban planning of the ‘Queen of cities’ as the city was known during the Byzantine imperial times. On the image we can see the Hippodrome, Boukoleon on the coast, the cathedral of Aghia Sophia and many other features of the imperial city.
