On another note, I couldn't help but equating the looting of Constantinople with reports I read about Baghdad after the invasion. To think that all the treasures, be they ancient texts, holy relics or art, could be taken to be redistributed by the victors. Inevitable I guess, and it has happened over and over again, certainly many museums would be half empty if spoils of war were returned.
Seeing the map that Zosimos drew was just crazy, but I suppose no less crazy than the old maps with whirlpools at the edges of the known world. I think that the reason why there is so much trickery going on is that most of the characters are a tad arrogant, making them easy targets.
