Roman place names

This is an attempt at a list of Roman place names, which is naturally still set to grow.
If you know of any names, - your hometown perhaps, - which is not on this list, then please get in touch by e-mail. Although it must be a name which I can somehow verify, in order to prevent hoaxers.
Also please consider that later latinizations of place names, for places like Moskow for example, will not be placed on the list. It is the Roman names of places which are sought.
Further, should you notice any inaccuracies in the list, please let me know.
Thank you,
The Webmaster
