  Kition | The Shelby White - Leon Levy Program for Archaeological Publications
It was decided that the best way to proceed with the publication of Kition VI would be the initial publication of a volume of plates for the objects.
In the preliminary publication (Karageorghis 1976), as well as in Kition II and III, which dealt with the Egyptian and Egyptianizing objects and the Phoenician inscriptions respectively, I used a chronology which was very tentative.
VI comprises a large number of appendices written by experts, which are most valuable for the understanding of a number of specific groups of objects, ceramics, seals, coins, lamps etc. May they all find here the expression of my gratitude and my apologies for the long delay which occurred before their studies appeared in print.

The oldest etymology is apparently that of Josephus, who connects Kittim with the well-known old Cypriote city Kition (Citium) (Ant., I, vi, 1), testifying to the settling of the Kittim on the island.
If Kition be, then, a Semitic word (from the same root as the Hebrew Kittim), it has been transferred from the small band of Phoenician settlers which it at first designated, to the non-Sem Japhethites of the West.
Kition occurs in the Phoenician inscriptions of Cyprus under the forms K(i)t(t) and K(i)t(t)i, the latter being by far the more common (CIS, I, i, 10,11,14,19, etc.).

The Phoenician period cemetery of Kition is no doubt the most extensively investigated necropolis of Cyprus in spite of the fact that very little is published thus far.
The Archaic and Classical period cemetery, which is the focus of our investigation, occupies a number of eminences rising from the flat ground mostly to the north and west of the city (Fig.
Nevertheless what was established on the base of these inscriptions was the peaceful coexistance between different ethnic groups residing at Kition.

 Father Demetrios Serfes - Life Of Saint Lazarus
The event of the transport of the holy relics from Kition to Constantinople was immortalized by Arethas, bishop of Caesarea, in two of his famous speeches, made on the occasion.
In the first speech he praises the arrival of the sacred relics from Kition to Constantinople, and in the second one he describes in detail the procession which the emperor formed to carry the relics from Chrysoupolis to the great cathedral of Saint Sophia.
This privilege was revoked in 1784 owing the efforts of Archbishop Chrysanthos [1767-1810] and the bishop of Kition Meteios A' [1776-1790], because the Roman Catholic Church, quoting their privilege, laid claims of joint ownership to the Church.

 Church puts out message of peace
According to the announcement, the description of the investigative committee’s mandate was added to the September 15 meeting retrospectively at a later meeting, which the Kition bishop did not attend.
Last week, in a public row through radio and TV stations, Chrysostomos of Kition, who sparked the claims over changes of the investigative committee’s mandate, insisting he was right, vowed to stand down and called Chrysostomos of Paphos to do the same if he was proved wrong.
Well-informed sources told reporters that the presence of all bishops during the reading of the announcement after the meeting was agreed to keep up appearances of Church unity and that the absence of Yeorgios of Arsinoe was the product of an intense climate during Monday’s meeting.

Kition was a well-established Phoenician settlement by the 9th century, with a temple to a fertility goddess whom the Phoenicians identified with their goddess Astarte.
At Kition there were two free-standing pillars either side of the central opening as well as 28 forming the support for a pair of porticoes.
There are similarities with the pillar from Kition and a single pillar found at a 7th century Greek temple at Sukas.

From 724 to 720 BC, Tyre was under siege, the port being blockaded by Shalmaneser.
During the reign of Sargon, the Assyrians had occupied Cyprus, but following Sargon's death in 705, Luli reclaimed the island and its colony of Kition.
In 701, after another revolt, Sennacherib forced Luli to flee to Kition.

 Balaam's Kittim Oracle
However ambiguous the archaeological finds at Kition, showing a short abandonment of the site in some areals between 1000 BC and the end of 9th century, one should not overstate this case.
An identity between Kittim and Kition would thus not create problems since the identification of biblical Kittim is not the same with the issue of its Phoenician colonisation or the date of late antique Kition.
Besides, should Kition be Kittim, this would mean that Cyprus would appear in Gen. 10 twice, once under Elisha/Alashiya and than under Kittim (not even by the side of Elisha in Gen. 10).

Kition has little to do with the Greeks other than as a thorn in the side of the Cypriot Greek states.

The Phoenicians founded merchant colonies as early as the 11th century (at Hazor and Gaza in Palestine, Memphis in Egypt, and Kition (Latarkia) in Cyprus), but these were all quarters within established cities rather than separate settlements.
Around 850, the settlement at Kition moved out of the native town and established itself as an independent town called Qart Hadasht—New City.
The city's Phoenician name was the same as Kition's: Qart-Hadasht (Greek Carchedon and Latin Carthago).

The move will come from Kition Bishop Chrysostomos, who wants to restore peace in Church circles after the crisis split the bishops over whether or not elections for a new Archbishop should be held.
President Papadopoulos had said the "issue of the Church should be resolved as soon as possible," but the Kition bishop yesterday said that his decision was also triggered by a number of Diko and Disy Mps as well as Larnaca citizens, whom he met at this week’s Larnaca Chamber of Commerce meeting.

Literary texts and inscriptions suggest that by the Classical period Kition was one of the principal local powers, along with its neighbor Salamis.
