That would be Hades ofcourse!

Toxotes: 6.5 Pierce Damage
-10% vs. Raiders
+200% vs. Buildings
+50% vs. Ships

Being Hades: +10%
All archer upgrades: +30%
All armory upgrades: +30%
Ares, Enyo's Bow of Horror: +10%
Apollo, Sun Ray: +10%
Artemis, Shafts of Plague: +15%
-
Total: +105% damage = 13,325P
Vs. Raider: +95% = 12,675P
Vs. Buildings: +305% = 26,325P
Vs. Ships: +155% = 16,575P

Peltast: 3 Pierce Damage
+300% vs. Archers
+100% vs. Throwing Axemen
+200% vs. Buildings
+50% vs. Ships
Being Hades: +10%
All archer upgrades: +30%
All armory upgrades: +30%
Apollo, Sun Ray: +10%
Artemis, Shafts of Plague: +15%
Total: +95% damage = 5,85
Vs. Archers: +395% = 14,85P
Vs. Throwing Axemen: +195% = 8,85P
Vs. Buildings: +295% = 11,85P
Vs. Ships: +145% = 7,35P

Gastraphetes: 8 Pierce Damage / 6 Crush Damage
+200% vs. Buildings
+50% vs. Ships
+50% vs. Myth Units
Being Hades: +10%
All archer upgrades: +30%
All armory upgrades: +30
Apollo, Sun Ray: +10%
Hephaestus, Weapon of the Titans: +20%
Total: +100% damage = 16P + 12C
Vs. Buildings: +300% = 32P + 24C
Vs. Ships: +150% = 20P + 15C
Vs. Myth Units: +150% = 20P +15C

Toxotes is the real damage dealer, dealing the most damage per pop
Peltast is only slight better vs. Archers, But will lose to evey other unit, IMO peltast is useless.
Gastraphetes mows down building, deals good damage and is far better against myth units.

Hades for Toxotes/Peltasts/Xbowmen.
Set for Slingers.
Ra for CA (Chariot Archers).
Thor for TA (Throwing Axemen).
Kronos for Chiero.

Hades, because his bonus and the god choices have many potential upgrades

if you want to be Egyptian, be Set
set slings> other slings and archers train faster
god choice has some good upgrades (Ptah, Sek)

Norse don't have any archers, they get throwing axemen instead and they really suck

The balista is a sort of archer unit, at least they do piece damage.

I think that the best archers in the game belong to Hades.

Gaia FH for Arcus. (not really)
Hades is the best for archers and an overall defensive/ economic play style.

Thank God SCII finally has a release date but it so so damn far away...
