Macedonia but No Greece in Ancient Rome

By Victor Bivell

Here is an interesting map of the Roman provinces in 117AD. Macedonia is there, and had been around for a while as 400 years earlier it was the first nation state in Europe. But the neighbours, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia and Albania, are not there. Nor are most of the other modern states of Europe. Irony is sometimes cruel as well as crazy. The United Nations' view of the world is upside down and back to front. Someone should give the UN a huge version of this map for their front foyer so they can see that Macedonia should be one of the first countries they recognize, not the last. The map comes from Here.
