- An ancient city opposite Constantinople, Chrysopolis is known as the city where the final battle between Licinius and Constantine took place, ending in comprehensive defeat for Licinius, who abdicated his throne, leaving Constantine to become Emperor of Rome. It is now called Üsküdar or Scutari. Its greatest period of prosperity was in the 15th century after the Ottoman conquest, when many mosques and public buildings were built there. During the Crimean war, it housed the military hospital in which Florence Nightingale worked.
- The Chrysopolis was the fastest and best-equipped steamer travelling the Sacramento River in the 1860's, setting a record of five hours and nineteen minutes for the run from Sacramento to San Francisco. There is an account given of a race on September 5, 1864 between the Chrysopolis and the Washoe, another riverboat, whose captain stoked the boilers of his ship to full power to try and break the other ship's reputation. The race ended when the Washoe's boiler room exploded, killing more than 50 people.
- A ghost town in California's Owens Valley. Built in 1881, it began to dwindle after a brief period of prosperity due to "Indian troubles" and its remote location. In the early 1900's, although Chrysopolis was effectively dead, it began to be used again as a mining centre during a prospecting boom, until this ended in 1910. The official date of abandonment of this town is given as 1960, but it had ceased to be a centre of human habitation long before this date, and now all that can be seen there are ruins.
- A titular see of Roman Arabia, mentioned in the Notitiae episcopatuum of Anastasius who was the Patriarch of Antioch in the sixth century.
