    Are there any differences between Civilisations in Civ 2. Any bonuses or advantages?

    There are some minor editable behavior changes, such as how warlike a civ is, but nothing like in Civ6 with unique units. You'll need a scenario for that.

    They are mostly the same. I remember years ago someone did research on the starting technologies, and ended up finding out that Egypt was more likely to get Masonry. I'll have to look it up to know for sure, but they actually started a lot more games to check once they thought that was happening.

    I think the only substantial difference is in tribe colour. In particular, the "key civ" mechanism.

    If you plan to be rated supreme, then purple is probably a better civilization, since you can get as far ahead technologically as you like without a massive penalty.
