 Pieridis Museum in Larnaca



The placard on the museum building says (as of 2013) "Perides Museum - Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation". The collection was initiated by the enlightened forefather of the Pierides family, Demetrios Pierides, in the 19th century (1811 - 1895), with the aim of protecting and preserving Cyprus' antiquities and preventing the loss of the islands history. his efforts were extremely important since during the 19th century and particularly under the Ottoman rule, the archaeological treasures of Cyprus, were traded systematically by various dealers who acted under the cover of various professions (diplomats, bankers) with the sole aim of collecting antiquities and selling them abroad.
