Bronze Age Stone Carving Found in Dromolaxia
A late Bronze Age stone carving of a bull or cow was found during excavations of an archaelogical dig in Dromolaxi near Hala Sultan Tekke, said the department of antiquities.
The expedition was led by Dr. Karin Nys of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel working with a team from the Justus-Liebig-Universitaet Giessen and a team from the Cyprus Institute.
Preliminary results from the archaeological dig show that there were four phases of human occupation of the area during the Late Bronze Age. The latest phase dates from 1190-1150 BC.
The bovine figurine is similar to one found by Claude F.A. Schaeffer in Enkomi, said the department of antiquities.
