STUNNING! MARVELOUS! Hill-filled! 🙂 My onnnnnllllllyyyy quibble is not one based on history, but on my own curiosity: why no mentions yet of polo? I keep seeing “polo grounds” on maps of Constantinople, to the east of the palace complex and the Hagia Sophia. Perhaps this sport’s popularity grew as chariot racing’s diminished?
