Written sources and inscriptions provide information that during the Roman period Ancient Kition played an important role in the establishment of Roman culture in Cyprus, however up to this day roman remains found in the city are very few. Therefore, the mosaic floor that came to light and the building it belongs to, provide important evidence for the development of the city during the Roman period.
