This is a sumptuously illustrated guide to the examples of ancient Cypriot art housed in the Musée du Louvre in Paris, one of the most important collections of Cypriot material outside Cyprus. A brief history of the Cypriot collection is provided by Caubet, and an introduction to the art and archaeology of Cyprus from earliest times to the Roman period by Karageorghis. Hermary contributes brief notes on Cypriot sculpture. The major part of the volume is an exhaustive catalogue of 201 artifacts dating from the Chalcolithic to the Roman period. These include ceramics, faience and stone objects, figurines of terracotta and bronze, stone sculture and vessels and jewellery in precious metals, including some from the excavations of Schaeffer. Amathus, Athienou, Enkomi, Golgoi, Idalion, Kition, Kourion, Lapithos, Marion, Sinda and Vounous are among the Cypriot sites represented, and Minet-el-Beida and Ras Shamra among sites abroad.
