DOI: 10.1558/equinox.42482


A brief and necessarily preliminary account and discussion is provided of the intriguing site of Mathiatis Mavrovouni in central Cyprus that was the subject of a limited rescue excavation and study by the author. The remains and material that were partly investigated and identified during road construction provide interesting evidence on a possible miner’s sanctuary site.
