    My guess is that they had a lot of haplogroups, including E1b1b, J1, J2, R1b, I1, I2, G2, and T.

    I tend to agree here. From the historical records, they seem a 'mixed' bunch as is the case with the Norman invasion force of 1066.

    The Romans certainly would not belong to one, monolithic haplogroup. I note the inclusion of I1 above, and I bet that was a minimal clade. The I2 you mention I can see as I2a2 and I2a1 but I imagine there would only be minimal I2b1.

    If you look at this page entitled 'Distribution of European Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) haplogroups by region in percentage' you can tell quite a lot: http://www.eupedia.com/europe/european_y-dna_haplogroups.shtml

    Its broken down by region, so if by Roman, you mean just the Latin peoples, you can look at Central Italy.
