Description: The A.G. Leventis Foundation Gallery of Ancient Cyprus showcases approximately 300 pieces from the ROM's extensive collection of Cypriot artifacts. The gallery focuses on the art created in Cyprus between the Bronze Age and the Hellenistic era (2200 - 30 BC). Divided into five sections, the gallery highlights the island's strategic location in the Eastern Mediterranean and the resulting multiculturalism.
The gallery is named for the A.G. Leventis Foundation, in appreciation of their generous support of the gallery. Anastasios Leventis, who established one of the largest companies in West Africa, created the A.G. Leventis Foundation in May 1979. The aim of the Foundation is to support educational, cultural, artistic and philanthropic causes in Cyprus, Greece and elsewhere.
