What is the best "dudes on a map" Greek mythology game?

i.e. axis and allies with Greek heroes and monsters and hopolites etc.

Mythology is fun, and you get to dispense with the miniatures!

Cyclades and Risk: Godstorm.

Others that don't quite fit your criteria but are great nonetheless include Commands & Colors: Ancients, Antike, Santorini, and Age of Mythology: The Boardgame.

Another (more offbeat) suggestion if you'd like a small box 2-player euro/wargame hybrid with plastic miniatures and god effect cards and hex tiles creating the map during play is Hellas. It's pretty thin on mythology, though.

Cyclades is excellent, but be aware that it's not really a dudes-on-a-map game (in the sense that you constantly battle your opponents and conquer territories) unless you add the Titans expansion. Without it, it's more of a "cold war" with occasional attacks. For the Greek heroes, you will need the Hades expansion (it also facilitates battles a little). And the core of the game is still an auction.

Definitely Hellenica: Story of Greece when it arrives later this year.

Cyclades is a great game, but not remotely a Dudes on a Map game.
