Xantheia und Didymoteichon : zwei verschiedene Aspekte des Fortbestehens der Byzantinischen Stadtbevölkerung Westthrakiens während der frühen OsmanenherrSchaft

Byzantine Thrace has been conquered by Ottomans between the years
1352-1373. This conquest changed the demographic image of the whole area.
We can note some important differences between the two medieval towns
Xantheia and Didymoteichon (both in Western Thrace) concerning evolutions
before and after Ottoman conquest: Political conditions during the late

conquest they played a completely different military and economical
role, which reflects the difference in their demographic status.
