Ancient tomb found in Cyprus
An ancient tomb was found on on Meleandros Street in Ayia Phyla in Limassol (Cyprus) by men working while digging a ditch. The Polemidia police and archaeologist Eleni Prokopiou of the Limassol Antiquities department visited the site to examine the tomb and its contents. Inside the tomb, which was unopened when they first found it, were different ancient clay pots and pitchers.
Prokopiou said the tomb and the contents are from the Cyprus-Archaic era and it is possible there may be more tombs in the area since others from the same era have been found in the past. The contents were taken by the Antiquities department for further examination, while the tomb was being examined for a short period.
