This project, by focusing on the archaeology of religion, aims to understand how l'histoire événementielle, namely the political transition from segmented administration by many Cypriot Basileis to the unitary island-wide government by a foreign Ptolemaic correspondent, the Strategos, affected the socio-cultural infrastructure, the mentalité, of the island. The relation between religious and social lives, political structures and religion, and the consideration of both elite and non-elite, as well as ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ structures, remain its principal concerns throughout.
