EIKONOLOGION


The EIKONOLOGION constitutes the Digital Archives of the Natural and Cultural Heritage of Cyprus. This pionneering project has been ralised thanks to a generous grant by TOTAL E&P CYPRUS. The initial collection of more than 38.000 documents donated by the founder of the Centre of Cultural Heritage, Dr. Sophocles Sophocleous, has been digitised and it is since 2017 available to the international academic community, as well as to the wide public.

The content of the EIKONOLOGION comprises at this very moment 28 categories that they are continuously enriched.

EIKONOLOGION, by its nature and use, will always be a scientific research project under development and re-adapted according to the evolution of technology.
