Archaeological evidence and historical texts can be combined to distinguish some of the physical characteristics of Byzantine cities of the 6th c. A.D. They can also be used to define a common conceptual model which Byzantine people of the 6th c. recalled when they pronounced the word polis, either when they were defining an existing settlement or when they were planning a new city. This paper considers in particular four cities that were built anew or completely rebuilt in this time. The survival of the idea of the city in the 6th c. East also appears to be significant in understanding the preservation and renewal of this concept in the West Mediterranean, after the dark centuries of the Early Middle Ages.
