Colchis is a fairly large regional power located along the eastern Black Sea in the Caucasian Mountains, within the region of Caucasia. Colchis shares borders with the nations of Flag of Iberia Iberia to the east, Flag of Legia Legia and 20px Siracia to the north, Flag of Phasis Phasis to the west, Flag of Trapezous Trapezous and the major power of Flag of Armenia Armenia to the southwest. Additionally, Colchis shares a sea tile with Flag of Sinope Sinope's Graeco-Pontic feudatory of Flag of Kerausous Kerausous. Colchis begins in 450 AUC with a sizable population for a regional power, having 134 pops in it's 24 cities, the vast majority of which belong to Colchis' primary culture and religion. Colchis' starting army consists of 2 cohorts of archers, 2 cohorts of light infantry, 2 supply trains, and a starting navy of 1 liburnian, 1 trireme, 1 tetrere, and 1 hexere. Colchis in 450 AUC starts in a strong position, except with stronger neighbors to the east and south. If a Colchis player can defeat or keep Iberia and Armenia at bay, Colchis has the potential to unite the Caucasus under a single banner, and even form the empire of 20px Persia if the 20px Seleucid Empire is overcome.
