Take note that I have only listed things which have different names than our (English) names (thus we do have a name for it), that are mentioned in this 'timeline', and that (closely) resemble the same things. As such, Terra Nova, or North America, is listed because it closely (but not exactly) resembles what we know as North America. But as we only have two continents in the Americas (North America and South America), and the world of 'Roma Delenda Est' has three (they have the continent Aztlan in what resembles the area Mesoamerica), the third continent isn't listed, as we don't have a continent that could resemble Aztlan (even though we do have an area that could, Mesoamerica). Also, while most names are Latin, that mainly is because I can't find a Punic translator, and I also can't find the Carthaginian names for things like the Alps or such. As such, I've decided to use Latin names, even though the world mostly knows them by either the Punic name or the name in their own language.
