The data of the last population statistics is of 2000.
The list given in the refering wikipedia article
gives the 100 biggest towns. So maybe that one should be used then
completely (Ankara as capital being the first)...
I don't know if there's something like a "founding date list" of cities...

Unfortunately not... so maybe I should not mingle with something I do not
know and we should leave that for later when (hopefully) there will be
some more turkish participants playing Freeciv ;-)
