Colony, trading post, kingdom, Phoenician enclave in Cyprus ... The ancient site of Kition (under the modern city of Larnaca) takes in historiography many different portraits, if not antagonistic. Based in particular on the results of the work carried out by the French archaeological mission since 1976 in the city, this lecture proposes examining the modalities of the Phoenician presence in Kition and, more generally, in the island.
