Explore Cyprus’ Top Archaeological Collection

If you’ve just arrived in Cyprus, make sure to visit the island’s top archaeological collection, and among the best in the world at the Cyprus Museum in Nicosia. Bronze Age artefacts are the most riveting, though every era from Stone Age to Byzantine is represented. Highlights include seventh- and sixth-century BC votive figurines in terracotta from the Agia Irini shrine, magnificent lions and sphinxes from Tamassos only found in 1997, the famous 12th-century bronze “Horned God” from Enkomi, a monumental bronze of Roman Emperior Septimius Severus, an Assyrian-influenced limestone statue of Zeus hurling a thunderbolt, and rich Mycenaean-style tomb finds from Salamis.
