(heavy sigh) No, apparently you don't understand.  We don't distinguish
between the Roman Republic and Empire, in our current rulesets.

There's no specific guideline, but we don't include Egyptian cities in the
Roman.ruleset, even though they conquered Egypt, because the Egyptian people
didn't become Roman citizens.

We don't include the Philippine cities in American.ruleset, even though they
conquered the Philippines, because the Philippines never "became" American.

Apparently, Valencians, Majorcans, Andorrans et alia "became" Catalan.  And
still speak something recognizably Catalan many hundreds of years later.
Not even the Roman Empire can claim that!

Those cities belong.
