SALAMIS

SALAMIS IN THE ISLAND OF CYPRUS.
BY ALEXANDER PALMA DI CESNOLÀ, F.S.A.,
page 8

The present work shows the results of the long and laborious excavations of Major di Cesnola in Cyprus, extending over a period of three years, chiefly at Salamis, one of the most important towns in the island, and colonised, as we have seen, by Phœnicians and Greeks. This is the third town in the island the Necropolis of which has yielded such important archaeological results, and extended the knowledge of Anatolian Greek art, as distinguished from that of a purely Hellenic character. The success which has attended the efforts of the excavator is due to his perseverance and discernment, added to his experience of the position and- appearance of promising sites, his acquaintance with the native character, and requisite resources for conducting the operations to a successful issue. Hence the acquisition of adequate results, which must be admitted to have been successfully obtained in the Lawrence-Cesnola collection. S. BIRCH.
