It’s not necessarily the same with Christianity as other pagan religions that existed during the Roman Empire, since the religion is purely monotheistic, it wasn’t able to be incorporated into roman religion like cultures or religions that came before.

Constantine didn’t deal with the uptick of Christianity by absorbing it, he himself converted and was arguably responsible for allowing it to grow and later becoming the dominant religion
