All over the eastern Mediterranean, cultic installations are commonly associated with economic endeavors. In Cyprus the bronze “ingot god” from Enkomi is an example from a Late Bronze Age copper-producing site. The small shrine of late Cypriot Athienou, seven miles from Idalion, was closely associated with a copper-smelting installation. Athienou’s small sanctuary, with its hundreds of votive vessels, was excavated by Trude Dothan and Amnon Ben-Tor in the early 1970s.
