Seafloor Ice Age Ruins at Mouth of Aspros River South of Troodos Mountains of Cyprus Named for Cupros Copper


Along the lowest stretch of the Aspros river during the Ice Age was a large settlement, the ruins of it much greater in extent than the town of Aspros which subsequently was built when the Ice Age had ended to have submerged the large ice age settlement now found on the seafloor thirty feet down not far from the cliff-line along the current shoreline were the town of Aspros was built. The Aspros river is now an intermittent stream (only in rainy seasons), but during the Ice Age perennially flowing probably full of fish, and transport from the copper rich Troodos mountains to the north.
