Dear fellow historians,

I think I am in the very correct forum to ask for some information. It is regarding the Persian empire, just before the invasion of Alexander's army. I am interested into the specific data:

- A list of satrapies in the 340s, with the Satrap names (a map would be a genuinely spectacular present and highly appreciated by yours truly)

- If possible, a rather accurate and analytical map of the Persian empire in the 340s BC, with as much imformation as possible

- If feasible, can anyone point out to me what kind of cultures lived within the bounds of each satrapy? My knowledge is limited in the westernmost edge of the empire (the Aegean coast of Asia Minor) ie. Greeks, Karians, Lydians, Phrygians, Lykians etc.

- Other data available, especially demographics, on this timeframe, will be extremely highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Check with the folks at www.pothos.org - they have a wealth of knowledge about Alexander and his conquests and may be able to point you to a source that has what you need.

Thank you vagabond, I've followed your advice and I've already extracted some data I need. Problem is I need still more and I would highly appreciate anyone with a sound knowledge (or a sounder collection of bookmarks) to give me some of it.

Anyone?

Good, because my knowledge is limited easternmost edge of the empire!

Nice map Cyrus

Thanks a lot. Now, would you be so extremely kind and helpful to give me more data? I have come up with the satrapy names (I'll use Arrian, mostly) but I need more on demographics and more town names etc.

Thank you in advance
