Ciao Paola, forse non ho capito cosa ti serve. Trovi una storia di Mileto molto ben fatta presso questo sito
Ho trovato che Mileto viene lasciato "Mileto" nella Catholic Encyclopedia, ad esempio. Se non basta questo, facci sapere!

I haven't quite understood what you are looking for, maybe a bit more context would help.
The University of Bochum is certainly in the town of Bochum (been there!).
You can go to Yahoo where you will find quite a number of 'Mileto', among them a town in Calabria, a café in the U.S., an Italian mathematician etc.

good luck anyway

Miletus, Asia Minor

You have the option of Mileto in Calabria and that of Miletus in Asia Minor.
I, like our colleagues, cannot see the connection with Bochum University, in the Ruhr town of Bochum.

Without seeing the context in which the word is used, I would say that it can have two possible translations:

1) Miletus--the English translation for the ancient Greek city of Ionia, in Asia Minor.

2) Miletus--the famous mathematician, known for his theorems.

I hope this helps.
