The Princeton Museum of Art is hosting an exhibit that explores the history and archaeology of Polis-Chrysochous (Marion-Arsinoe in antiquity), in northwest Cyprus, which runs until January 20. Here’s a quick run down from the website:
This exhibition explores the history and archaeology of Polis Chrysochous, a town in the Republic of Cyprus that is the site of the ancient city of Marion and its successor city, Arsinoe.
Celebrating the conclusion of more than two decades of excavations at Polis by the Princeton Department of Art and Archaeology, under the direction of Professor William A. P. Childs, City of Gold will feature 110 objects lent by the Cypriot Department of Antiquities, the British Museum, and the Musée du Louvre, including splendid gold jewelry and a rare marble statue of a kouros, or nude male youth.
A digital reconstruction of several of the site’s buildings can also be viewed here:
