Larnakas tis Lapithou (Greek: Λάρνακας της Λαπήθου; Turkish: Kozan) is a village in Cyprus, near the town of Lapithos. It is under the de facto control of Northern Cyprus.

Until 1911, Larnakas tis Lapithou had a Muslim minority. They are said to have had relocated to nearby Kampyli. In 1973, Larnakas tis Lapithou had an estimated population of 873, consisting entirely of Greek Cypriots. All were displaced to the south of Cyprus in 1974. Today, it is inhabited by displaced Turkish Cypriots from various villages in Paphos District.[2]
