For "west Thrace," how about Edirne? It wasn't Macedonia, and it's nice and short. It should reach to the Dardenelles, btw.
Instead of Lesbos (which would be a Byzantine possession) make it Chios, a Genoese possession, and one which fell much later to the Ottomans.
Exactly which maps are you talking about now?
I don't like Edirne, as that's the Turkish name - a name that weren't used back then, IIRC.
Are you sure the Genovese didn't hold Lesbos? I was certain they did...
And Chios is a less cool name.
