Arsos (Greek: Αρσος, Turkish: Yiğitler) is a village in Northern Cyprus. The construction of a road from Arsos to Pyla is one of the conditions that Turkish Cyprus requested from Greek Cyprus in return for the opening of the Limnitis gate. It is 32 km (20 mi) east of Nicosia and a golden necklace was found in the village.[2]
