From Chapter 17 of the Decline & Fall

Constantinopolis dedicatur poene omnium urbium nuditate. Hieronym. Chron. p. 181.

See Codinus, p. 8, 9 [p. 16 sq. ed. Bonn]. The author of the Antiquitat. Const. l. iii. (apud Banduri Imp. Orient. tom. i. p. 41) enumerates Rome, Sicily, Antioch, Athens, and a long list of other cities. The provinces of Greece and Asia Minor may be supposed to have yielded the richest booty.
