    No, or at least not in its entirety. From what I recall, the Greeks at that time had a pretty good knowledge of lands west off Babylon, and certainly some knowledge of Persia proper (Persis and Media). But what laid beyond that was almost entirely terra incognita to them.

Xenophon and Herodotus both write about India but Greeks didn't know how far away it was. Hecataeus of Miletus (who lived in the Ionian portion of the Persian Empire) created a map of the world that includes India in it, but after Alexander's conquests subsequent maps (e.g. Eratosthenes' map) better reflected the size of Asia and show India being much farther away from Greece than previous maps had.

    Little update that will probably interest some of you who wanted to know about satrapies. After a lot of testing, the Persian AI just isn't performing how we want as a large empire so we are now giving it at try with satrapies instead. Here is an updated map we are currently working on:

    Looks promising. This setup might also make more plausible Persian scenario to play as I am actually quite interested how the empire was divided into satrapies under Persian kings. So far I am only familiar with the way Alexander divided the realm with his generals

    Here is a nice reference, although we didn't use this fully for gameplay reasons but we followed it a bit

    How many Macedonian players are going to largely ignore Persia and focus on Italy instead?

    Looks very impressive, definitely interested to see how it plays out once you are ready to release it.
