The Pliocene beds are divided into two classes, the Older and the Newer. The former are characterised by shelly limestones and soft calcareous sands, abounding principally in the Carpas, at Davlos, and near Akanthou.

Russell has employed the terms ' Kyrenia rock ' and 'Nicosia beds,' and it is principally in the neighbourhood of the towns indicated by these names that the more characteristic rocks of this age are met with — namely, in the Kyrenia (Quarries and at Hag. Similar shelly limestones are met with in many other parts of the island where the deposits are worked for building stone ; of these places the more important are Famagusta, Yeri, Cape Pyla, Kyra, Hag. A sot'ter and finer quality is met with in the neighbourhood of Kouklia and Kalopsida, where it is also remarkable for being of a deeper sepia hue. HIGH COMMl SSIONEk A HANDBOOK OF CYPEUS COMPILED BY SIR J. The northern range, called on the east the Carpas mountains, and towards their western extremity the Kyrenia mountains, extends in an unbroken chain from Cape St. Quartz-andesite appears to be confined to the isolated A'olcanic tract of Strullos, near Larnaca ; but Andesites are found all along the outer part of the Tillyria District from Yalia to near Levka ; they are green in colour from the pi'esence of chlortic and delessitic minerals. Christ's College, Cambridge CHIEF JUSTICE OF CEYLON AND CLAUDE DELAVAL COBHAM, C. It is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, being inferior in size to Sicily and Sardinia, and larger than Corsica or Crete. A trigonometrical survey and map were executed in 1885 under the direction of II. Croce or Stavrovouni (the Olympus of Strabo), 2,260 feet, 12 miles west of Larnaca. Serpentiiie also occurs around Phinicaria, near Limasol, and in all the exposures in the Acamas, and in the Carpas serpentine seems to be present. HANDBOOK OP CYPEUS GEOGRAPHY Ctpbtjs is an island in the ^Mediterranean, situated in tlie eastern- most basin of that sea, nearly equally distant from the coast ol Asia Minor to the north and of Syria to the east. A band of shaly marls with layers of a flinty substance called hornstone has been observed in close association with the compact limestones, and as these are found largely in the western portion of the Kyrenia range they have been termed 'the Lapithos Beds.' Dr. , since its coasts lie parallel to tlie mountain spines, and rise out of a shallow, shoaling sea. The Pedias (Pediseus) and lalias (Idalias) lose most of their flood waters in the marshes about Salamis; the Pedias rises near Machaira and passes close to Nicosia ; the lalias rises very near the source of the Pedias, passes through Nesou, Dali (the ancient Idalion) and I'yroi, and traverses the Mesaoria in a direction more or less parallel with the Pedias. Quarternary and Tertiary Rocks, Pleistocene Pliocene Miocene Oligocene Eocene Secondary (Mesozoic) Rocks Cretaceous Igneous Rocks GEOLOGY GEOLOGY Cyprus has attracted the attention of a number of geologists whose observations have been published under the auspices of various learned societies on the C'ontinent. Basalts are found chiefty in the Tillyria district ; they are much decomposed and veined "with calcite, and are frequently vesicular with geodes of calcite in the cavities. Quartz-felsite or Rhyolite has only been found in the neighbourhood of Pente- dactylos, where it is of a white variety. In the areas occupied by these shelly limestones the hmd- surface is often bare of soil, the rock being covered by a thin veneering of carbonate of lime, the result of successive solution and precipitation of the calcareous matter contained in the rock itself. Such districts are generally known as ' Kafkalla.' In other parts this rock surface is overspread by a tliin layer of reddish soil, fine and loamy, the colour of which has resulted in these districts being known as the 'Red Villages.' Frequently the roclcy surface-crust is thin, and when traversed by vehicles or animals gives forth a hollow sound indicating the voids beneath ; sometimes this crust has been broken, GEOLOGY revealing large cavities, and at other times, when this covering is removed, deposits of a material known as ' Khavara ' are exposed ; this is a calcareous tufa containing small pebbles, and is employed as gravel. The Pleistocene Beds include all the deposits of later date than the Pliocene, and may be briefly classified as (1) Littoral Limestones, (2) Soft shelly sands near Larnaca, (3) Inland surface conglomerates, (4) Cave-earths, (5) Alluvial plains and marshes, (6) Blown sand. The products of these two periods are readily distinguishable from all the older strata on account of their unconformability to the latter, as well as by the fact that the newer beds almost always lie in a nearly horizontal position. Moreover, the deposits of these two periods yield abundant fossil remains. The beds have suffered much disturbance and are generally found to be in an almost vertical position, their character having been changed by compression and by the intrusion of igneous masses. The Trj-panian series is principally composed of compact limestones.
