In May 2013 a conference took place in Berlin organized by the Cypriot-German Cultural Association on the occasion of its 35th anniversary. The event presented in close collaboration with the Collection of Classical Antiquities of the State Museums in Berlin (Antikensammlung, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin) was prompted by the reorganization of the Neues Museum, which comprises a magnificent gallery of Cypriote antiquities. Most of the Cypriote objects kept in Berlin were published with short entries in the collection's catalogue which appeared in English and in German in 2001 and 2002 respectively. The conference, however, provided a platform for a number of scholars to present their recent studies on some of the Cypriote objects of the Berlin Museums objects ranging from the Late Bronze Age until the Hellenistic period, such as an exceptional vessel with animal protome, an elaborate bronze stand, vases of the Pictorial Style, finds from the Royal Cemetery of Tamassos and the necropoleis of Marion and examples of funerary and votive sculpture made of limestone and terracotta. The book contains papers by Vassos Karageorghis, Gabriele Koiner, Viola Lewandowski, Hartmut Matthäus, Robert S. Merrillees, George Papasavvas, Elena Poyiadji-Richter, Sabine Rogge & Eftychia Zachariou-Kaila, Andreas Scholl and Reinhard Senff.
