CYPRUS WEEKLY - Phoenician Legends

Those of you who have already visited the Italian Embassy's exhibition at the Cyprus Museum on 'Along The Road Of The Phoenicians' and would like to know more about the Phoenician civilization might like to take a look at a book that is actually published in Cyprus.

 

Although a children's book, Wafa Stephan Tawnowski's Dances With The Gods has been selling to adults too. Subtitled 'Canaanite-Phoenician Myths & Legends Retold', it also includes a brief introduction on the history of the Phoenician people before many ancient stories, including one that features Kition in Cyprus.

 

With bright illustrations by Myriam Misk, this very attractive edition will make the young reader in particular eager to read the tales.
