Cyprus Photos: Curium (Kourion)
Tuesday 10 October 2006
The restored Greco-Roman amphitheatre, at the site of the ancient city of
Kourion, commonly known as Curium, its Latin name.
The amphitheatre is used today for open air musical and theatrical performances.
Looking across the 2000-seat amphitheatre to the Akrotiri peninsula.
The Kourion Episcopal Basilica, which dates from the early 5th century, built on
earlier Roman ruins.
This hexagonal swimming basin, measuring 9.25m in diameter and 1.5m in depth
formed the cold bath or frigidarium of the north-eastern complex of the Kourion
public baths (AD 200-365)
