It took me much longer to finish that it needed to (I couldn't resist conquering my allies with the 20 Hoplite companies :-), but nonetheless this city pleases me a great deal. The land space is more or less all utilized, and I've got the "big three brothers" (i.e. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) looking after my happy little city. In episode four (the one preceding my city) I would recomend conquering Ethiopia first, as one can become trapped in a vicious cycle of conquering a city only to see if fall to a rival soon afterwards (Ethiopia conquers Miletos which conquers Cyme which conquers the colony Pergamum---so conquer [or reconquer] them in this order!).
