limited to:

1. Issues of the ancient kingdoms of Amathus, Kition, Kourion, Idalion, Lapethos, Marion, Paphos, Soli, and Salamis dating from the end of the 6th century B.C. to 332 B.C.

2. Issues of the Hellenistic period,such as those of Paphos, Salamis, and Kition from 332 B.C. to c. 30 B.C.

3. Provincial and local issues of the Roman period from c. 30 B.C. to 235 A.D. Often these have a bust or head on one side and the image of a temple (the Temple of Aphrodite at Palaipaphos) or statue (statue of Zeus Salaminios) on the other.

Comment: The first import restrictions on coins, imposed against the recommendations of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee. CPAC’s chairman at the time, the late Jay Kislak, confirmed in an affidavit that the decision was made against his Committee’s recommendations, and that the State Department misled the public and Congress about it in official government documents. The Designated List includes early issues found in the famous Asyut Hoard from Egypt, Hellenistic coins that circulated throughout the Ptolemaic Empire, and Roman Provincial coins that circulated in quantity in nearby Turkey.
