Hala Sultan Tekke is a Late Bronze Age city between 25 and 50 ha in size located close to the famous homonymous mosque near the international airport of Larnaca on the southern coast of Cyprus. In addition to the geophysical prospecting, including geophysical, already conducted, another georadar survey covering some 60 ha is planned in order to identify the full extent of the city. Earlier excavations have indicated that the city flourished primarily in the later part of the Late Bronze Age, around 1200 BCE, but the more recent excavations begun in 2010 have exposed evidence of a settlement dating back to at least the 16th/15th centuries BCE. This contribution deals with a Levantine import, one of the tomb gifts in the exceptional rich Tomb X from Area A (cemetery) at Hala Sultan tekke.
