Countries in the Byzantine Empire

Can you name the modern-day countries who were part of the Byzantine Empire at its peak in 555 A.D.? Not counting vassal states

UK is given to you since gibraltar was part of it
Some of these countries, especially in the West, were held only briefly

If you're interested in this period of history, Count Belisarius by Robert Graves is a good read.

Either you are bragging and exagerating or time have been changed. Cause i typed countries back to back without pause and am not a slow typer (on laptop anyway, tablet slows things down) and was tight in time.. Missed a few ( conviced I had allready typed croatia, but portugal had slipped my mind and malta and cyprus hadnt come up yet either) but not time to figure out which country I hadnt typed yet. (But atleast 4 of which I had tried werent on, so maybe if I had typed the right countries the time would ve been less tight)

Wasn't just thinking of my own score. Also about the total score of people. Right now the least guessed country is still 72%, not way low. Of course it depends on how hard they want the quiz to be.

San Marino was already independent back then, it was just smaller than today, therefore it has to be included, but not 100%.

"smaller than today" - What is this? A country for ants?
