Archaeologist Finds The Oldest Temple In Cyprus

An Italian archaeologist Maria Rosaria Belgiorno finds a temple in Cyprus which is believed to be the oldest religious worship about 4,000 years old. It is found at the Pyrgos-Mavroraki site close to the southern city of Limassol. Everyone thinks that It is probably destroyed in an earthquake and abandoned in 1800 BC.

In the past, the Pyrgos-Mavroraki site has also yielded finds ranging from an ancient perfumery to one of the earliest records of how olive oil was used to fire furnaces

"This is the first evidence of religion in Cyprus at the beginning of the second millennium BC," she was quoted as telling the Cyprus Weekly newspaper from Rome.

The Cyprus Antiquities Department said further examination will be required in order to get proof. "We cannot dismiss the claim but we cannot verify it either," Antiquities Department official Maria Hadjicosti told Reuters.
