P.S. Why not merge it with Ionia? then it can serve a gameplay purpose.
It does serve a purpose as it is. I deliberately kept it as a dead space territ so you can hide behind a neutral or be trapped by an opponent or partner. It also fits in with the themes of the maps time of exploration. Last reason is that if it connects to Ionia, that whole continent becomes too powerful and the winner of that corner will win the game.
