This is going to be on a double sized table, about 6" x 8". My game room isn't large enough for this sized table so I did the test set-up in two stages.
This is one side of the table, representing the main area of the province of Ruritania. One corner contains the provincial capital of Colonia Stresona. There are also a few villages, villas, a state-owned granary (taxes were often paid in kind in the late Empire), a church, and a settlement belonging to the Roman-allied (at least initially) Sarmatian tribe, the Ruritanii, for whom the province is named.
The other side of the table will be the frontier area, dominated by the might Ister Flumens.
