Archaeological Museum of the Lemesos

Located in Limassol, Cyprus, the Archaeological Museum of the Lemesos District is a unique museum that showcases relics from the past. The museum was first established in the area of the old castle of Limassol. It was later moved to a nearby location and was finally given to the Cypriot National Guard.

The museum contains a range of exhibits from Neolithic times to the Roman period. One room, for instance, primarily displays pottery of various historical periods. The other two rooms house jewellery, lamps, and coins. The third room houses sculptures, marble and limestone objects, and tomb stones.

The museum also features an interesting exhibit: a fold ark that was used from the 19th century until the end of the 20th. It also has an interesting collection of modern glass bottles.

An exhibit in the Lemesos District Archaeological Museum is a celebration of the ancient city of Amathus. Amathus, a former thriving city of Cyprus, was once located adjacent to the town of Limassol. However, it was severely damaged by earthquakes. The museum displays Greek and Roman statues from the site.

Amathus was a major center of trade with neighboring countries.

Archaeological excavations have revealed a number of rich finds. The site contains tombs, early Christian basilicas and the Temple of Aphrodite. There are also parts of the city's acropolis, a harbor, and an ancient market.

In the fourth century AD, Amathus became a Christian see. In the sixth century, the city was the birthplace of St. Tychon of Amathus, a bishop who later became a bishop of Alexandria.
