The Department of Antiquities, Ministry of Communications and Works, announces the completion of the fourth season of excavations of the Department of Classical Archaeology of the Institute of Archaeology, Jagiellonian University (JU), Kraków, Poland within the framework of the Pafos Agora Project, which aims to explore and study the Agora of the ancient city of Nea Pafos, the capital of Cyprus in the Hellenistic and Roman periods.

The non-invasive research was conducted by specialists from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow (Laser scanning of trenches) and the J.
