"City of Gold: Tomb and Temple in Ancient Cyprus", Princeton University Art Museum (Statuette of seated woman and attendant, 330 - 320 B.C.)

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.
