Judging from http://www.wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=18564#entry290060 , translations are the most notorious feature.

Philadelphus” would make sense.

The first important translation in the West was that of the Septuagint, a collection of Jewish Scriptures translated into early Koine Greek in Alexandria between the 3rd and 1st centuries BCE. The dispersed Jews had forgotten their ancestral language and needed Greek versions (translations) of their Scriptures. — History of Translation, Wikipedia.

The traditional story is that Ptolemy II sponsored the translation for use by the many Alexandrian Jews who were not fluent in Hebrew but fluent in Koine Greek,[3] which was the lingua franca of Alexandria, Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean[4] from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BCE until the development of Byzantine Greek around 600 CE. — Septuagint, Wikipedia

Phonecia, (Phoiníkē) in Greek, which will need no introduction to most, but for those for whom the word has no meaning, the Phonecians were a dominant culture in the near east and Mediterranean around the events of 0AD, and included Carthage

Some mythological suggestions





Plutarch was a Greek historian

Psusennes was a pharaoh who ruled lower Egypt and built the city of Tanis in the Nile Delta

Pirames a city in the Nile Delta

Persepolis an important Persian/Hellenic city

Parthia a Persia-based empire

EDIT, sorry, ran away with myself there, Psusennes and Pirames are way too early
