Mosaics from Cyprus

Paphos is a coastal city in the southwest of Cyprus. It is famous for the remains of the Roman governor's palace, where extensive, fine mosaics are a major tourist attraction.

The proceeds of the refugee stamps go to the refugee fund, i.e. for the Greek Cypriots who became refugees from their homes in the north of Cyprus after the invasion in 1974.
