Hispania

Roman-Spain was an area approximately the size of the modern-day Spanish nation. These lands have been Roman for several hundreds of years; the people no longer consider themselves anything but Roman.

The region of Greece encompasses the provinces/areas of Epirus, Macedonia, and the Peloponnese. Any threads taking place in Epirus or in Athens, etc. should be placed in here.

The area of Thrace encompasses the lands to the east of Greece, going to the Bosporus Straight that separates Europe from Asia. The city of Byzantium is within Thrace. Dacia is the newly-conquered province, still rife with problems.

Asia et Syria

0 posts

The geographical regions of Asia (Asia Minor) and Syria (the "Middle East") were some of the richest provinces in the Roman empire. In particular the city of Antioch within Syria was considered the "Rome of the East" and was the base for almost all of the Eastern Legions.

Judea

0 posts

Judea was tricky in terms of Roman ownership because though it was a client-kingdom, it also enjoyed quite a bit of autonomy. It was considered a province by Rome -- with a procurator being put in place there -- yet it was also recognized as an independent kingdom. The holy city of Jerusalem is within this region.

Mare Nostrum

0 posts

Though not a province, the Mare Nostrum (the Mediterranean) is the main 'highway' of travel between the various provinces of Europe and Asia. Any threads that may take place at sea should be placed within this sub-forum.
