Do any geospatial data sources exist about the Roman Empire?

e.g. roads, cities, ports, shorelines where they changed over time.

Generally speaking, the number of datasets that are available in electronic formats for what concerns historical societies is very small.

For Roman roads and cities: the best place to start is http://pleiades.stoa.org/ (all under CC-BY), but there isn't much in proper geospatial format except for settlements (e.g. no roads).
