Various Byzantine sources like the register of sepulcher (Graberverzeichnis) and the book of formalities (Zeremonienbuch) of emperor Constantine IV. Claim the existence of 9 imperial sarcophagi in Constantinople (Mausoleum and Apostelkirche). Until now, all sarcophagi appeared to be known. Recent research had made it clear that there are 19 sarcophagi instead of 9. Only four of them could be allocated. A detailed analysis and a list containing all known burial places of the Byzantine Emperors completes this volume.
