NEA PAPHOS COLLOQUIUM III: ANOTHER ACROPOLIS AT PAPHOS: FABRIKA HILL AND BEYOND
A free conference on latest research into the history and archaeology of Nea Paphos
8th-11th November 2022
The House of Cyprus at the Embassy of Cyprus in Athens will host the conference of the third Colloquium on Nea Paphos on 11th November.
Following on from successful scientific meetings on the history and archaeology of Paphos held in Avignon in 2012 and Paphos in 2017, the aim of the third Colloquium is to place the area of Fabrika Hill, the north-eastern sector of Nea Paphos, within the broader historical context of the rest of Hellenistic, Roman and Medieval Paphos and across the wider region of western Cyprus.
The Colloquium is also an occasion to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the University of Sydney’s expedition at the theatre of Paphos and the 15th anniversary of the French archaeological expedition at Paphos (Avignon University) under the auspices of the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs. Both foreign missions work in the area of Fabrika Hill and their activities, together with those of the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus, can now help us integrate this area into what we know about other parts of the city of Nea Paphos.
