DID YOU KNOW: Where did all the languages at Pentecost come from?

At the day of Pentecost, there surely were a lot of peoples represented...
And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” (Acts 2:8-11) where did they all come from, geographically?  This handy-dandy map may help you to place them all.
