Proto-Eastern-Romance, but it doesn't matter much in practice (the
only thing relevant to this aspect that happened between P.E.R. and
Romanian was the further narrowing of /enC/ to /inC/ in e.g. <dinte>
or <timp> (VL dEnte/tEmpu, PER dente, tempu, R. dinte, timp)

the Latin right, the rest just follows from there.
