As late as 1914 Vlachs lived in a mountain range in the Athens area (Hymettus).

As per the author, the following territories were regarded as ethnically Vlach regions in the late Middle Ages - and known under the following names:

Page 257:
Thessaly: Great Wallachia
Aetolia, Acarnania, along the coast to the Corinthian gulf: Small Wallachia
Pindus mountains (Epirus): Upper Wallachia
Achaia: Lower Wallachia

Page 257 quote:
"Oni (Vlasi) su zapravo posvuda posvjedoceni kako na Halkidiku, na planinama Rodopa, na azijskom delu Bospora, u Atici, Eubeji, na Peloponezu, tako i na Krfu i drugim Jonskim ostrvima."

If there is still any doubt - a quote from Jakob Philipp Fallmerayer: “Φυλετικό κράμα Σλάβων και Αρβανιτόβλαχων οι σημερινοί Έλληνες”.
