Buildings overlooking a previously discovered Phoenician complex more than 2,000 years old were found at the ancient city of Idalion, the island’s Antiquities department said on Friday.
“The complex may have been used by the soldiers who guarded the tower,” the department said in a news release.
Idalion was founded by Chalcanor, a descendant of Troy’s King Priam, according to the Antiquities department.
