Map showing the maximum extant of the Roman Empire, in 117 AD; when Emperor Trajan called a halt to further conquest and expansion. At that time, one could travel from northern Britain through Europe into Asia Minor and Egypt; using one language, one currency, and one passport. Forty modern nations now occupy the region once ruled by Ancient Rome.
