Byzantine
The primary language used in the eastern Roman prov­inces even before the decline of the Western Empire was Greek, having been spoken in the region for cen­turies before Latin. The use of Latin as the language of ad­min­is­tra­tion per­sist­ed until formally abol­ished (in favour of Greek) by Her­a­clius in the 7th century.
