    I translated this into English from old fashioned Italian, feel free to object if you believe it is incorrect.

    Roman Statistic

    In Rome, a Corp of 20.000 Infantry and 1.500 Cavalry, sorted from Roman Citizens, and furthermore 30.000 foot soldiers, and 2.000 Cavalryman taken from the allies were kept ready.
    The list of population and of recruitment provides:
    Among the Latins, 80.000 Infantry, and 5.000 horses;
    Within the Samnites 70.000 Infantry and 7.000 horses;

    This map is very interesting.
    According to this map and according to other info from inet, in Tuscany there should be some Etruscan influence.

    From a genetic point of view on Wiki is told old Etruscans were most close to today Germans.

    It does seem the dots are individualized. I am noticing our ancestors map for 500 years ago is different between us.
