You are correct, and Slavery was not finished until the American Civil War. Constantine was part of the very very long process of changing the Roman Empire. Are you going to foolishly argue that the Byzantine Empire under Justinian was the same empire as under Domitian?

The same? No. But to the citizens it was still very much the Roman Empire.
