About Istanbul

Imagine a city that most popular civilizations were jealous for hundreds of years.

First settlement clues dating back to the 7th BC and excavated by archaeologists at the 21st century AD, which is indicate Istanbul settled earlier than previously thought and before the Bosphorus was even formed. Due to legend, the colony of Byzantium was found in 660 B.C. by a Megarian named Byzas which was named after him. Byzas chose the spot after consulting an oracle of Delphi who told him to settle across from the "land of the blind ones".

Greeks, Athenians, Persians, and Spartans fought over the city early on. Even the Gauls attacked Byzantium in the third century B. C. In 202 B. C. Byzantium, besieged by Macedonians, asked Rome for protection. By 73 B. C. the city had become part of a Roman province. In A. D. 196, Byzantium found itself on the wrong side of an internal Roman power struggle and paid dearly. Roman emperor Septimus Severus (146–211; r. 193–211) massacred its residents and destroyed most of the city. He rebuilt Byzantium, which continued to prosper despite serious attacks, civil wars, and rebellions that broke out in the Roman Empire over many decades... more info
