Kition (Greek: Κίτιον, Kítion; Phoenician: 𐤊𐤕, KT, or 𐤊𐤕𐤉, KTY; Latin: Citium) was a city-kingdom on the southern coast of Cyprus (in present-day Larnaca). According to the text on the plaque closest to the excavation pit of the Kathari site (as of 2013), it was established in the 13th century BC by Greek (Achaean) settlers, after the Trojan war.
