Princeton University Art Museum,
Saturday October 20, 2012 - Sunday January 20 2013
The exhibition is organised within the framework of Cyprus' Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
Celebrating the conclusion of more than two decades of Princeton-led excavations, this exhibition explores the history and archaeology of Polis Chrysochous, which under the earlier names of Marion and Arsinoe was one of the great cities of ancient and medieval Cyprus. City of Gold features 110 objects on loan from the Department of Antiquities, the British Museum and the Musée du Louvre, including splendid gold jewellery, monumental and miniature figural sculpture, seals, coins, bronzes, and ceramics, as well as photographs and maps of the excavated sites in a compelling new look at archaeology itself. A catalogue of the exhibition is available in English.
