 From the private journal of Lieutenant Donisthorpe Donne:

On my way back to Limassol next day I found the ruins of the Temple of Apollo Hylates near Curium. It occupied a commanding position not far from the promontory and a few 100 yards from the road to Paphos there is a jumble of ruins and fallen columns and the foundations can all be traced and in one place I observed a fine piece of Greek inscription bearing the word ‘Apollo’ on it. At Episkopi the black Muchtar gave me a very good dinner a la Turk: after which I summoned the principal villagers to a meeting on the subject of theft, etc. We also called on the Lord of Colossi Tower on our way back.
