EIKONOLOGION


The EIKONOLOGION constitutes the Digital Archives of the Natural and Cultural Heritage of Cyprus. This pionneering project is under development. Thanks to a generous grant by TOTAL E&P CYPRUS B.V. the initial collection of more than 35.000 documents donated by the founder of the Centre of Cultural Heritage, Dr. Sophocles Sophocleous, has been digitised and it will be available to the international academic community as a material for research by the end of 2016.

The content of the EIKONOLOGION comprises 25 categories.
