The antiquities that have been discovered in Amargetis are especially famous for the sculptures and inscriptions from the bases of statues, both in the Hellenistic and Roman eras. According to the “inscriptions-tributes” there was a temple dedicated to the god Apollo Melanthios. Important finds are today, among others, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in the Archaeological Museums of Paphos and Nicosia. A team of archaeologists from the University of Graz in Austria officially began excavations for the sanctuary of Apollo Melanthi in Amargeti, in October 2019.
