Erimi- Laonin tou Porakou 2013

Cyprus Department of Antiquities

The Department of Antiquities, Ministry of Communications and Works, announces the completion of the 2013 fieldwork season undertaken by the Italian Archaeological Mission (Università degli Studi di Firenze) at the site of Erimi-Laonin tou Porakou. This year’s investigations took place from from July 22nd to August 20th 2013.

The Bronze Age site of Erimi-Laonin tou Porakou lies on an high plateau on the eastern river bank of the Kouris, just on the border between Ypsonas and Erimi villages of the Lemesos District. The occupation sequence of the site consists of two main phases. The first and most significant one ranges from the Middle to the very beginning of Late Bronze Age period (EC III/MCI- LC I); Afterwards the site was frequented only in the late-Hellenistic and Roman period, apparently following a lengthy abandonment.

The focus of the 2013 season was to investigate three significant areas, different to each other in use: the top hill area (Area A), the domestic quarter (Area B) and the southern cemetery (Area E).
