Cyprus is mentioned 3 times in the Old Testament and 7 times in the New Testament. It was the home of Barnabas (Acts 4:36) and was visited by Paul, Barnabas, and John Mark on Paul’s first missionary journey.
The “House of Theseus” is named after its main mosaic—that of Thesesus killing the Minotaur (at Knossos on Crete). It is the largest Roman house discovered on Cyprus and an earlier version of it may very well have been the residence of Sergius Paulus, the proconsul (Roman governor of Cyprus), who is mentioned in Acts 13:4–12, and who was converted to “Christianity.”

Cyprus is located at the northeastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. It is the third largest Mediterranean Island with a population of 800,000 people. 80% are Greek Cypriots, 11% Turkish Cypriots, and 9% are foreign residents. It is about 3,572 sq. mi. [9,251 sq. km.] in size—about half the size of the US state of New Jersey. This palace has been under excavation by a Polish team since 1966.
