Amathus Cyprus, the oldest Citadel in the world.


Contributor Nour Dupir created this amazing drone video of an important ancient ruins site on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.  Amathus was an Iron Age city on the southern shore of the island, dating to about 1100 BC.  The city was founded by Cinyras, an ancient king of Cyprus who is much mentioned in many stories of Greek mythology.  Its sanctuary to the Goddess Aphrodite (whose home was Cyprus) was the second most important on the island after Paphos.  Amathus continued to be an important city throughout Roman times.
