Hellenistic & Roman Period Cemetery in Protaras


The Hellenistic & Roman Period Cemetery is also known as the Makronisos Cemetery. The ancient cemetery is home to 19 tombs. The entrance of the cemetery was initially sealed with a large calcarenite slab or two smaller calcarenite slabs.

Besides the ancient tombs, excavations revealed many historic treasures such as clay sarcophagi that are exhibited at Thalassa Municipal Museum.
