2. Ionian Revolt   1 unit = 500 HI or Sparbara, 250 LH,
  Cyprian Salamis I - 498BC   333 LMI or Cv, 165 LI
 

The Greek Cypriot cities, observing events in Ionia, attempted to break away from Persian rule. Salamis was the largest polis in Cyprus and Gorgus sat on its throne as tyrant, and representative of Persian rule on the island. His brother Onesilus was keen to make a break and usurped the throne of Salamis during an absence of Gorgus. Both sides called up their allied city state contingents and met outsid the walls of Salamis. The Persian amy won.

Game notes
The Greek aristocratic chariots desert to the Persians on a Greek initiative roll of 3 or less, killing Onesilus in the process. If the chariots of on command desert, the others desert automatically as well, but in the next game turn.

 
 
   
  Heavy chariot. Perhaps a bit earlier than our period, but you get an idea.
