EMERGENCY AND MEDICAL SERVICES

Sevan Bevedian

The Cyprus Mail is spelling the names of the island’s cities to reflect in English how they are spoken in Greek. The Government has long tried to do the same, although many official websites still use the old spellings.

So Nicosia is now Lefkosia, Limassol is Lemesos, Larnaca is Larnaka, Paphos is Pafos, and Famagusta is Ammochostos.
