|Unique Building for Byzantine Empire (Replaces Theatre)|
"The Hippodrome of Constantinople (literally "Horse Path" in Greek) was constructed in 203 AD by the Emperor Septimius Severus. The building was a massive venue for chariot races. While the art of charioteering saw great advances in the Hippodrome - the first four-horse races were held here - much of the venue's renown would stem from it involvement in one of the most terrible massacres in Byzantine history. During the Nika Revolts, a brutal uprising between rival racing factions, nearly 30000 rioters were slain by Byzantine troops within the Hippodrome."
"The Hippodrome, the Byzantine replacement for the Theatre, provides a bonus to happiness, an extra happiness for access to Horses and an increased happiness bonus from money dedicated to your cultural slider."
