  • [01] Geronisos island excavation completed

    Monumental ashlar walls, huge pithoi, Hellenistic bowls, jugs, casseroles, and amphorae fragments, were among the findings from this year`s excavations on the island of Geronisos, opposite Agios Georgios tis Pegeias, in the Paphos District.

    According to the Department of Antiquities, this year`s excavations, which lasted five weeks, were carried out by the New York University Geronisos Island Expedition under the direction of Prof. Joan Breton Connelly.

    The team consisted of fourteen senior staff members and graduate and undergraduate students from New York University. Extensive evidence for monumental ashlar walls was revealed in a series of gypsum mortar setting beds for large stone blocks, most likely robbed out during the Early Byzantine period (6th-7th century A.D.) for construction of the Christian basilicas across the way at Agios Georgios.
