  • "Horned God" of Engomi. Engomi is a small village two kilometers to the West of Salamis, which gave Cyprus a lot of archaeological finds of world importance. Earlier this place was known as Alasia, and is probably the oldest city in Cyprus. In the 15th century BC it was already a major centre for the processing of copper
with a population of about 10,000 inhabitants. Two bronze figures, which are exhibited today in the Museum date from the 12th century BC. Most likely in this region there was a cult of fertility, had in common with the Cretan cult of the bulls, and the priests used horned headdresses for rituals.#statue #bronze #art #achaei #achivi #history #arheology #museum #nicosia #cyprus
