    Suggestions? Here go mine:

    Tartessos - trading city in southwest Iberia
    Knossos - on Crete
    Sana'a - southern Arabia
    Ur, Uruk, and/or Larsa - Sumerian cities to flesh out Mesopotamia
    Massilia (unless Greek settler maps go there) - present-day Marseille, founded by Greeks
    Sardis - western Asia Minor, capital of Lydia

    I'm not sure if Tartessos and Sana'a fit on the map, but they'd be nice additions. I agree with the rest of your list except Massilia: it really should be founded by the Greeks (though it could appear later as independant if they don't colonize for some reason).

    Petra: famous Nabatean city (but perhaps too close to Israel?)
    Cirta: I thought we should try to represent Numidia but this is dangerously close to Carthage
    Tigranakert: capital of the Armenian Kingdom (1st century BC)

    Apparently Massilia was founded by Phocaea which was founded by Athens. So it could go on an Athenian settler map, but could be difficult.

    Yeah, that might be a problem: the main Greek cities that colonized the Mediterranean are neither Athens nor Sparta; however we want the Greeks to colonize. Both civs should colonize according to their respective allies/subjugated cities (for instance, the Athenians should found Massilia, and the Spartans should found Syracuse). But both should have all the Greek colonies on their settler maps, only with a different priority order.

    yeah we need some historical research to be forwarded to city names, and eventually, settlers maps.
    Both Athens and Sparta would have names of colonies founded by any other Greek city, but an higher settler value only for a direct colony or a colony of an ally.
    For example, all Megara's colonies should belong to Sparta, if we follow this rule
