The Mediterranean Sea is an inland sea bordered by Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The sea empties into the Atlantic Ocean through the Straits of Gibraltar between Spain and Morocco. The Roman Empire ruled over the entire area in late antiquity, before being divided into a Western and an Eastern (Byzantine) empire.
