The Romaians speak the Greek language, which forms its own unique branch within the Indo-European family of languages, the Hellenic. They are part of a group of pre-modern ethnicities, described by Anthony D. Smith as an "archetypal diaspora people".
There are currently three main schools of thought on medieval eastern Roman identity. First, the preponderant view considers "Romanity" the mode of self-identification of the subjects of a multi-ethnic empire, in which the elite did not self-identify as Greek and the average subject considered him/herself as Roman.

The defining traits of being considered one of the Rhomaioi are being an Orthodox Christian and more importantly speaking Greek, characteristics which had to be acquired by birth if one was not to be considered an allogenes or even a barbarian. The term mostly used to describe someone who was a foreigner to both the Romaians and their state was ethnikós (Greek: ἐθνικός), a term which originally described non-Jews or non-Christians, but had lost its religious meaning. In a classicizing vein usually applied to other peoples, Byzantine authors regularly referred to their own people as "Ausones", an ancient name for the inhabitants of Italy.The defining features of Romaian civilization are: 1) Greek language, culture, literature, and science, 2) Roman law and tradition, 3) Christian faith. Romaians perceived themselves as, heirs to the culture of ancient Greece, the political heirs of imperial Rome, and followers of the Apostles.Thus, the sense of "Romanity" was different from that of their contemporaries in the West.

Romaian mostly recognised by anthropologists as atlanto-meditarranean, dinaric mediterranean and mediterranean racial type
