An invention mentioned sometimes supposed to be from Byzantium is the PIZZA. This would be a significant contribution although Wikipedia says that PIZZA was invented together by the ancient Greeks in Italy and the Etruscans, i.e. centuries before the formation of “Byzantium” (although I could not find any reliable original sources for both stories and I can imagine that PIZZA was invented even much much earlier..).
