===Neolithic===
 
In AD 330, the capital of the Roman Empire was moved to [[Byzantium]], and the city continued to prosper. In [[Byzantine]] days Hama was known as '''Emath''' or '''Emathoùs''' (''Εμαθούς'' in [[Greek language|Greek]]). Roman rule from Byzantium meant the [[Christian religion]] was strengthened throughout the Near East, and churches were built in Hama and other cities. The Byzantine historian [[John of Epiphania]] was born in Hama in the 6th century.<ref name="Ring2"/>
