Roman emperors Arcadius and Honorius command that only bishops and priests who are from Constantinople can serve in that city.

According to this decree:

"In order to guard against the beginning of sedition, it has been determined by Our decision that all foreign bishops and foreign clerics shall be expelled from this most sacred City." [CTh 16.2.37]

There has recently been rioting in Constantinople involving clerics, but since the arsonists cannot be found, all the clergy in prison are to be released and sent back to where they came from.
