The Boukoleon Palace was built by Theophilos (829-842) with a facade to the sea on top of the sea walls that had been thickened in this region some decades before. The western part of this facade survived until 1873 when it was demolished to give way for the railway, the eastern part still stands upright. This reconstruction is based on old drawings made before the destruction and the suggestions of E. Mamboury published in 1934. About the back parts of the building behind the facade and the railway nearly nothing is known.
