The picture shown above was taken in 1915. This place is only 100 meters away from where I spent 15 years of my life in North Cyprus. Today, It pretty much looks the same after all those years.

The picture on the upper right corner of the page was taken by Koral Efecan in Salamis, North Cyprus. I believe I took this picture in August 2003.

"The ancient city of Salamis became the capital of Cyprus as far back as 1100 BC. The finding of some gold coins bearing the name of Evagoras, 411 to 374 BC, is the first genuine evidence of the city's importance.The theatre with 50 rows of seats and a seating capacity of 15,000 is the second most spectacular sight. The most monumental part of the site are the columns and the gymnasium with its colonnaded Palaestra.  For more than a thousand years, the Roman city of Salamis lay buried in sands which saved the site from wanton destruction in the Middle Ages"
