Hebdomon was one of the most important suburbs of Constantinople. The splendid edifices that adorned it were considered similar to those of the Byzantine capital. But besides architecture, the location was of great importance, since it was the site where the legions camped and the starting point of imperial triumphal processions to the capital.
