Garden, Museum

Near the Limassol Public Gardens is the Limassol District Archeological Museum. It houses an interesting anthology of antiquities found in the Limassol area from the Neolithic Age to the Roman period. It has an amusing garden containing a sundial, which was once owned by Lord Kitchener. Room One contains Neolithic tools and earthenware casing a colossal time span from 3000 B.C. to A.D. 1300 from Amathus, Kourion and Limassol itself. There are six amphorae in one corner from 2,300 B.C. Room Two has statuettes and ornaments from 1700 B.C., Roman coins and even early razor blades. Also of interest is a bronze bull. Room Three contains some of the most imperative finds, including statues of the Egyptian god Bes and Artemis found at Amathus and some other fragments of figurines representing other deities.
