The gemara (makot 5 a) discusses a case of possible eidim zomimim (reuvain and shimon) who testify about a murder that took place in sura in the AM and other witnesses (levi and Yehuda) say that reuvain and shimon were with them in the PM in Naharda. When the Rambam brings down this halacha in hilchot eidut (19:1) he brings down the halacha but uses Yerushalayim and Lud (note that the Tur keeps sura and neharda). I'm curious if this is a pattern in the Rambam or if anyone has seen any explanations.
