IDALIUM [Idalion] (Cyprus)

Ancient town, 15 mi NW of Larnaca, near the modern village of Dali. The center of an old Cypriot kingdom, it was later dominated by the Phoenician city of Citium. It was a center of the worship of Aphrodite, which came to Cyprus from the East, and has yielded an inscription that provided the key to the ancient Cypriot language.
