Archaeological Museum Opens Exhibition of Chinese, Cypriot Antiquities

The Archaeological Museum of Limassol opened an exhibition of Chinese and Cypriot antiquities, entitled "Two distant worlds: The Chinese Dynasties of Qin-Han and Roman Cyprus," for the enjoyment of the general public.

The exhibition was inaugurated on Monday, September 28 by Minister of Communications and Transport, Marios Demetriades, who stressed that the cooperative relations between the respective states date back several centuries.

"Discoveries at archaeological excavations in Nicosia and Paphos prove that Cyprus, during the Medieval Age, was receptor of Chinese porcelain, which arrived via the important commercial route which became known as the 'Silk Road'," said Demetriades.

He added that the archaeological findings indicate that Cyprus is among the first areas of Europe to have imported porcelain.

"It is a promising fact that the cooperation between the two countries in sectors such as the technology and the economy are today also found on the sector of culture and archaeology," Demetriades concluded.

On the following slides, Gold News presents images of the new exhibition.
