Two ranges, the Trogodos and Kyrenia Mountains, and a central plain are the major physical features of Cyprus. Human settlement is dated to 10,000 BC. Mycenaean Greeks, Syrians, and Phoenicians established settlements prior to the Classical period.

The later Roman province of Cyprus is a separate place.
