Museum of George and Nefeli Giabra Pierides Collection

Donated by Clio and Solon Triantafyllides, the museum presents one of the most important private collections of Greek Mycenaean pottery on the island, including a unique anthropomorphic vessel, as well as the white slip and base ring style -two typical forms of pottery from the Late Bronze Age in Cyprus that made the island’s pottery famous the world over.

The richest part of the collection consists of limestone sculptures from the 6th century to the Hellenistic period, whilst the museum also showcases clay figurines, coins, jewellery and copper pieces amongst its hundreds of exhibits.

Thanks to the SPYRA Innovative Digital Archaeological Explorer, visitors can see a simulation of pieces they choose by inserting (imitation) fragments into the base of the machine, which then displays an image of how the exhibit would have looked, along with its relevant information.

The museum is also linked with the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
