A local walking and photography group has reported that a man is living in Kato Paphos’ ancient catacombs.

In a post on their Facebook page ‘Cyprus from Air’ says: “This poor man has made one of the Ayia Solomoni Christian catacombs his home”.

The group asked anyone who knew the man to come forward to help him or at least let his family know where he was in case they were searching for him.

“He does not seem dangerous,” the Facebook post adds, suggesting that anyone kind enough to take him some food should do so.

According to the Cyprus Tourism Organisation’s website, the Ayia Solomoni Church is a chapel that forms part of a small underground complex of chamber tombs from the Hellenistic period.

In Medieval times the site was a popular pilgrimage and has also been called ‘The Chapel of the Seven Sleepers’, or ‘The Seven Maccabees’.

Ayia Solomoni was one of the first to reject idolatry and embrace Christianity on the island.
