Emperor Constantine the Great selected the ancient town of Byzantine as a site for his new capital for the following reasons: he felt that a capital should best be close to the frontiers of Mesopotamia and the Balkans which were crucial at that time, Byzantine was a peninsula and so it is relatively easy to defend, also Constantine had converted to Christianity. At this time, many old families of Rome still continued to worship classical pagan gods. I hope this helps.
