Beyond Cyprus: Investigating Cypriot Connectivity in the Mediterranean from the Late Bronze Age to the End of the Classical Period

This volume is largely based on papers presented at the international conference “Beyond Cyprus: Investigating Cypriot Connectivity in the Mediterranean from the Late Bronze Age to the End of the Classical Period”, that was held digitally on 8–11 December 2020, under the auspices of the Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation.

The conference was organised by the editor of the volume as part of a postdoctoral research project under the same name (acronym CyCoMed), funded by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (HFRI) and the General Secretariat for Research and Innovation (GSRI) within the framework of the first HFRI advertisement for postdoctoral research projects, under grant agreement no. 481.

The principal research questions treated in the volume are closely related to the examination and interpretation of Cypriot archaeological, epigraphic and numismatic evidence from extra-insular sites, as well as to the definition of the role Cypriots may have played as participants in the maritime contacts of the ancient Mediterranean. All 41 papers contained in this volume were externally reviewed and revised for publication. They cover a time range that spans approximately the Middle Bronze Age to the Roman period (early second millennium BC to ca AD 300). Equally numerous are the geographic entities examined, covering a large area, from the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea to the Iberian Peninsula, thus providing an overview of Cypriot evidence throughout the Mediterranean.
