Defend both city's choke points with spears Link supported by slingers Link , if you get to catch a break between infantry waves like I did, replace the now-battered spears with the swords LinkLink, who were placed in a part of the city from which they were protected by enemy missile fire by buildings, so you take less time to recoup your human losses. The Persian missiles are darkening the skies though, and Baktrian men do not deal with shade as well as the Spartans do, so send your light cavalry Link to chase them off assisted by these abominations Link.
The safest way to allow the damaged army to replenish is by breaking a very temporary peace with the Persians, demanding money, making the fools repay the repairs you had to do on the city you conquered a few years back. LinkLink
Let the plebs pray to their newfound hope LinkLink
