Contemporary Serbia extends fully or partially over several former Roman provinces such as Moesia, Pannonia, Praevalitana, Dalmatia, Dacia and Macedonia. I'll accept it. Thanks.

Dalmatia also covers a large part of Croatia, which was my first guess. Did the Romans really know about Finland??

"Dalmatia" really ought to be Croatia, not Montenegro. The Delmatae tribe after which it's named lived entirely within the borders of modern Croatia.

After Dalmatia became a Roman province, it did encompass the entire coast for a while, but its most important city was Salona, at the site of modern Split, the second-largest city in Croatia and capital of the Croatian county which is still named "Dalmatia".

Eventually, the southern part of the province of Dalmatia was broken off and became the province of Praevalitana. The most important city in Praevalitana was Doclea, at the site of modern Podgorica, capital and largest city of Montenegro.

The quiz will accept Croatia, Montenegro or Serbia as a correct response. See my previous comment regarding Dalmatia.

Im from Croatia and Dalmatia is in Croatia. Not Serbia. In Montenegro is a smaller part, but ok.

Are these really all Roman names? Finnia, Norvegia, Suecia and Polonia I would think are post-Roman Latin names.
