Miletos is a local power in the region of Asia and once the wealthiest and most important of the Greek cities of Asia Minor. An ancient city dating back to the days of the Myceneans and Minoans, Miletos was resettled by Ionians and by the 7th and 6th centuries BC had entered its golden age, known as the most prolific colonizer out of all of the Greek cities and dominating the colonization of Euxine and Propontic Seas along with its ally of Megara, and producing an intellectual school and tradition (most famously including the philosophers Thales and Anaximander) that would be regarded as the beginning of Greek scientific philosophy. By the start of the game the city had gone into decline after its sack and conquest by the Achaemenid Empire, but regained under its importance under the various Diadochi kings who ruled the region and the continued in that rule in the subsequent Roman rule and beyond, until its harbour silted up at the end of the medieval era.
Reflecting its heritage of Pontic colonization, Miletos can get access to the unique Euxine Sea Hellenistic cultural mission tree The Hospitable Sea if it becomes independent, directing it to expand its influence and dominate the Euxine Sea region. Like most other Hellenistic group countries, if Miletos conquers territory in Greece it can also get the Greek cultural mission tree Pan-Hellenic Government and attempt to unite the Greek city-states into a new Hellenic League.
Regardless of what path it chooses to take, like all other countries Miletos also has access to the generic missions.
As Miletos has Hellenistic primary culture, it can take the decision to reunite Alexander the Great's empire and form the Hellenistic Empire if it controls the required territories. This, however, will require Miletos to change its government type to a monarchy.
Reunite Alexander's Empire
For too long parasites and scavengers have made a feast of the Great Empire that Alexander spent a lifetime building. It is time we do away with all claimants, usurpers and delusional provincial strongmen. There can be only one authority within the empire of Alexander the Great, one upholder of the great Hellenistic legacy that this great man founded.
That one power could not possibly come from any dynasty but our own. Only a family that respects the Argead traditions can legitimately claim its legacy.
