Roman Starting Positions

Post  Strategos Roma on Sat Apr 30, 2011 12:10 am

In 80Bc, the SPQR should have all of Spain exculding Lusitania under Sertorius and the Basque Country and Cantabria, Italy, Transalpine Gaul (the EB regions of Lugonensis, Greseoallara and Volcallra), Dalmatia, all of Greece and Macedon, Africa and Asia. I think that Tripolitania and Cyrenaica would also be Roman. Cyprus and Crete would be Eleutheroi and Rhodos, Massalia and maybe Cyrene should have Type 4 Governments.

So, what provinces would all this correspond into in NOM?

Ok thx.

Just a few questions: How is Dalmatia going to be portrayed as the Romans controlled only the coastal part and it would be unrealistic to give them the whole region. Also, the capital of Lugonensis should become Lugdunum (I forgot what it was in EB; either Gergovia or Vienne I think), which was the capital of Transalpine Gaul during this period.

I think Dyrrachium will be the province controlling much of the Dalmatian coast.

Thx

A bit more information on the situation in the East:
Bithynia was at that time an independent Roman ally under Nikomedes IV; however upon his sudden death in 74 the kingdom passed to the Romans. Therefore I'd suggest that the region start as a Type IV Client State under the SPQR.

Cyprus did not become Roman until 58; at that time it was ruled by a rival claimant to the Ptolemaic throne who was a brother of Ptolemy XII, so it should start as an eleutheroi province.

Cyrene was Roman but no formal province existed, so it should probably be a Type III government.

Cilicia was Roman at that time, or at least its Western part which had been a formal province since 102.
