This is not my best Miletus ever, I had begun imports too early and then i was several times in debt. But I´ve noticed that some ships from Athenae are buying not only oil, which they are supposed to buy, but weapons too!
The saved game in the .zip file does not have an extension. (I added .sav to the file name to load it.)
A ship from Aethenae could buy weapons if it docked immediately after a ship from Corinthus sold 12 imports and left the dock while dockers were going to a warehouse to buy weapons. For details, see the Caesar III: Game Help forum thread "Trade ship leaves dock immediately after selling 12 or buying 12".

You are right I´ve observed them more carefully and that was the issue. But still, that ship was loaded by 3 weapons and 9 oil. And that .sav problem, I usually name my saved cities just 1.sav and name it properly only when I´m satisfied with the final result.
