Located on the north coast of Cyprus 10 km west of Keryneia, Lapethos/Lepethis Phoinikon is known through archaeological remains for the most part. Archaeological evidence shows settlement already in the Late Bronze Age, continuing to the first millennium BCE and beyond. The tradition of Lapethos holds that the kingdom was founded by Praxandros from Lakonia in the Peloponnese.
