  • English: Idalion was an ancient city in Cyprus, near modern Dali, Nicosia District. Idalion was one of 10 Cypriot kingdoms listed on the prism (many-sided tablet) of the Assyrian king Esarhaddon (680/–669 BC). Eventually dominated by the Phoenician city of Citium, it became the centre of a cult of Aphrodite and of the Helleno-Phoenician deity Resheph-Apollo.
