Flavor-wise, I'm not so sure. The Azlanti have a sort of "Atlantean" feel to them, which is close. Also, linguistically speaking, ancient Azlanti had an effect on modern languages in a way similar to Latin.
From what I understand, Taldor had a few similarities to the Roman empire in that it had a vast empire which eventually split into a number of smaller states.
That's all I've got off the top of my head, but I'm sure some other folks can fill in the gaps. :)
(I wonder what Cyclopean culture was like.)
To me, Golarion as a whole feels more of a High Middle Ages feel versus a Classical Age feel. Taldor seems to be the close equivalent, though, the crumbling remains of a once continent spanning empire (Roman), barely getting by while another decadent empire (Cheliax) has its own problems (Holy Roman).
Also, Taldor's proximity to Qadira & Kelesh gives it enough of a Western Roman Empire (Byzantium) feel being right next door to the Persian culture equivalent.
