Devoted to archaeology, the Cyprus Museum includes in its collections several inscriptions related to the Jewish presence on the island in antiquity. An inscribed column, probably dating from the 4th century, records (in Greek) the renovation of a synagogue; it is illustrated in the Encyclopaedia Judaica, 5, 1183.
