It's a mind-boggling display of Cyprus' vast history covering a huge time span from 3000 BC to AD 1300. Room Two holds artifacts from the Graeco-Roman era including a stunning bronze bull and some delicate figurines, while Room Three contains some of the most important finds from the local area, including statues of the Egyptian god Bes and the goddess Artemis unearthed at Amathus. Outside, within the pleasant garden, is a sundial, which was once owned by Lord Kitchener. ”
