Paphos Mosaics

EXCURSIONS / Archaeological Sites / Paphos / Paphos Mosaics
The “Tombs of the Kings” are situated close to the sea in the north western necropolis of Pafos.

They owe their name to their size and splendour – some probably belonged to the Pafian aristocracy, and not because royalty was buried there.

They are rock cut and date to the Hellenistic and early Roman periods.

Some of them imitate the houses of the living, with the rooms (here the burial chambers) opening onto a peristyle atrium.

They are similar to tombs found in Alexandria, demonstrating the close relations between the two cities during the Hellenistic period.
