Well, the capital of independant Assyria was rather Niniveh. Ctesiphon is the capital of the Parthian empire. (And yes, I know about these questions three ;) ).

good quiz and this must have been hard to figure out type-ins... some things that I tried:
Since "Germany" or "Germania" worked for two Germania territories I thought that "Gaul" might work for the several Gallia provinces, but it did not. I also thought "Spain" or "Espana" might work for the two Hispanias, but it did not. Also Britain works but not Brittania?

Gallia and Hispania both had an extreme importance in the Roman Empire, whereas Moesia, a province of less importance for example was divided into an outer and an inner part (interior / superior) which I consequently didn‘t use in the type-ins. Also, the Gallian and Hispanic provinces were named after towns (Tarraco/Tarragona, Narbo/Narbonne and so on), so I drew the line that when a province starts with the same name but is followed by a geographical position, you have to enter the first name only (like Germania), whereas provinces named after a city you have to outspell the province‘s names - to reply to your and Djilas‘s comment. Maybe it‘s a bit random but I had to draw the line somewhere. Britannia does work as long as you spell it correctly. One t and double n.

okay. Just surprised this got put on the front page like that. I mean it's gotta be a pretty tiny percentage of people that would even have heard that information before let alone retained it, but I know QM is kind of a Roman Empire nerd.
