Ancient City of Soli

One of the Nine Cyprus Kingdoms, Soli rebelled against the Persians, who were in power in 498 BC, and faced a severe defeat. Had its most brilliant days in the Roman Times, Soli was completely destroyed with the Arab Raids in the 7th C AD. What remains today is a Soli Basilica, oen of the oldest churches in Cyprus; and a 4000-spectator capacity Roman theatre.
