Apologies in advance if this has been asked/ answered elsewhere.

I have the game set up for five players. If I want to play it with four apart from removing Carthage are there a no of cards in the the other decks that need to be swapped out for the originals and if so could someone kindly point me as to where I might find the list.

Thanking you in advance

Aren't they simply replacing the card of the same number?

E.g. EXP-8 for the Greeks (Ophellas) replaces 8 - Agathocles lands in Africa?

This is correct. The Carthaginian set up is a bit different, in that the CU are all generic, there are not Mercenary CU. Also, the Hamilcar leader slightly different IIRC, I think the Strategy rating is different, but that doesn't really matter since only Neutral Powers cards are used to Activate them.

Yes to the above quote, I believe there are 6 cards that have to be swapped out. If you go to the GMT Games webpage, "Sword of Rome" page, there is an excellent .xls doc there that you can d/l that is a card manifest, it tells you all of the cards that need to be exchanged between 5p and 4p...I refer to this doc frequently.
