During the medieval period, the empire called the Roman Empire was centered in Greece and covered only the eastern Mediterranean. It is the empire that we now call the Byzantine empire, to distinguish it from the ancient Roman Empire that was centered on Rome and Italy and came to encompass the entire Mediterranean, as well as lands well beyond.
