Brilliant photo set there, a real representation of both sides of the city - old and new! Must go there sometime.

Names of Istanbul in historical sequence.
1.1 Byzantium
1.2 Augusta Antonina
1.3 New Rome
1.4 Constantinople
1.5 Other Byzantine names "Queen of Cities"
1.6 Kostantiniyye
1.7 Istanbul
1.8 Stamboul


I didn't know Augusta Antonina, Cool.
Augusta Antonina was a name given to the city during a brief period in the 3rd century AD. It was conferred to it by the Roman emperor Septimius Severus (193-211) in honour of his son Antoninus, the later emperor Caracalla.

Stamboul was very popular among western sources in late period of Ottomans. It's actually where Istanbul comes from since all other names were almost forgotten during that period.

Very nice. The city got everything from ancient to Dubai style modern.
