To be honest I am not sure what you are asking? A dictionary definition of Cyprus can be found here

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=cyprus

Is that any use?

Welcome to the forum andy re... don't get too hung up on winning arguments though, in this place, arguments are never won or lost, they just go on forever! :lol:

I second your argument about the name of 'copper', see the definition below.

In Greek times, the metal was known by the name Chalkos. In Roman times, it became known as aes Cyprium (aes being the generic Latin term for copper alloys, and because so much of it was mined in Cyprus). From this, the phrase was simplified to cuprum and then Anglicized into the English copper.
