Future Work[edit]

This section is designed to discuss the future work of the article.


We should seek to extend the Culture section to include a new subsection regarding the traditional clothing worn in Cyprus, given that there was a distinctive dress amongst men and women, such as the Vraka. Indeed, these are no longer worn except for dance performances and celebrations of Cyprus' history, but I think it's worth including if possible. This new section may be titled as 'Folk Costume' to relate to the following article: Folk costume.

Aphrodite[edit]

Having a look so as to replace the cn tag in the etymology section with a reference, I feel that the details about Aphrodite need not be mentioned here, since Aphrodite got the name Kypria by the virtue of her being associated with Cyprus (source), which does not have much to do with the origin of the name Cyprus (though it is obviously related to the history of the name). We already talk about Cyprus being the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite in the history section and I think the part about Aphrodite should be removed from the etymology section. Do other users have other ideas? --GGT (talk) 16:07, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cyprus' continent in the lead[edit]

"National Geographic, BBC, World Atlas and numerous other sources place Cyprus in Europe. Notably, the UN classification of world regions places Cyprus in Western Asia. Some sources, even place Cyprus in the Middle East or in mixed categories." Do we really need all this in the lead, naming all sources putting it in Europe and then using some editorialising? Can't we just avoid the issue altogether in the lead and leave it to the geography section, just shorten and say "numerous sources place Cyprus in Europe, while some place it in Asia or the Middle East" or something of the like? The lead it long enough already without this and all this listing does seem a bit undue to me. --GGT (talk) 17:43, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Totally agree, it's not lede worthy. Moved it to the geography section. Athenean (talk) 06:42, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
