Larnakas tis Lapithou (Greek: Λάρνακας της Λαπήθου; Turkish: Kozan) is a village in Cyprus, near the town of Lapithos. It is currently under occupation by Turkish troops after an invasion on the island of Cyprus by Turkey in 1974. 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 became refugees in 1974 after the Turkish invasion. The original name of the village is Larnakas tis Lapithou and for its Greek Cypriots inhabitants who fled during the Turkish invasion of 1974 and scattered all over the south of Cyprus it will always remain so. But the village has changed drastically. It was renamed after 1974 to Kozan (in Turkish) and became home by displaced Turkish Cypriots from various villages in Paphos Districtfrom the south of Cyprus who moved there after 1974.
