It is located east of the city of Limassol and it was considered one of the most important and one of the largest cities in ancient Cyprus.

Over the centuries, Amathounta was conquered and ruled by different civilizations like theĀ  Eteocyprians, Greeks, Phoenicians, Persians, Ptolemies, Romans and Byzantines.

In 649 to 691AD the city in question was rebuilt after a strong earthquake in 77-78AD.

Furthermore, the central city of Amathus had two main levels: the lower which was the (agora) and the upper city named (acropolis). Lower level included also the Public Baths and the Fountain Complex.
