What travelers say:

The ancient capital of Salamis is located on the eastern coast of Cyprus. According to Homer’s epic, after the Trojan War in the twelfth century BC, the Greek archer Taser came to the eastern coast of Cyprus and built this town. Salamis reached its heyday in the Roman period, and its trade in goods expanded to neighboring countries and regions, and it was known as the Oriental Mall. After the Arab invasion in the seventh century AD, the city of Salamis gradually declined into ruins. Rows of remnant Roman columns and semicircular Roman theater in the ruins bear witness to the most glorious period of history.
