How come Western Rome laster half a millennia and most of former rome speaks a romance language whereas Eastern Rome laster a millenia more than them (not even counting things like ancient greek colonies and alexanders empire) but basically no one in the balkans and eastern medietteran speaks greek or a language derived from it?
