¶Of Romania. chap. 131.

ROmania, is called the newe Nation of Romanes: for Ne is Gréeke, and is to saye newe. For since that time that Constantine translated the seate of the Empyre of Rome, out of Rome to Con∣stantinople, a Citie of Thracia: all the Countrey and Regions of Gréekes were called Romania, that is as much to say, as newe Rome, as Rabanus sayeth. Therefore vnto this daye, the Gréekes call not themselues Gréeks in their com∣mon language, but rather Romanos. Looke before De Gree, in litera G. wher thou shalt finde manye other things of the Gréekes.
