10th Anniversary of Marios Tokas' Death
Issue Date: 27 April 2018

A single stamp with face value €0,64c, also available on Full Sheets (8 stamps per sheet), Cancelled To Order (CTO) and on a single Official FDC.

Marios Tokas, was born in Limassol in 1954 and was engaged in music at a very young age. He studied at the National Conservatory of Athens and the School of Philosophy. After his studies he settled in Greece where he started a family. He composed great works of music inspired also from the rare Cypriot timbres, thus endearing them to every Greek.

In 1978, he released his first album “Ta tragoudia tis pareas”. Each one of his songs was a great success and interpreted by renowned singers his music was disseminated quickly among Greeks everywhere. In 1996 he composed the symphony “Theogenitor Maria”. Some of his landmark songs such as “Annoula tou Chionia”, “S’agapo san to gelio tou Mai”, “I nychta myrizi yasemi”, “San trelo fortigo”, “Exartatai”, “S’anazyto sti Saloniki”, “Ta ladadika”, “Thalasses”, “Dydima Fegaria”, demonstrate Marios Tokas’ talent as a melodist. He composed music for some great poems, for theatre plays, movies, as well as children’s songs. The Turkish invasion and occupation inspired in him such songs as “Anasikose tin plati sou Pentadaktyle”, Ammochostos Vasilevousa”, “I diki mou patrida”, etc., which touches the heart of Cypriot Hellenism.

In March 2001, the President of the Republic of Cyprus bestowed on him the Medal for Outstanding Contribution to Cyprus and in 2002 he was awarded with the “Yiannos Kranidiotis” Prize.

Marios Tokas passed away on 27 April, 2008.

EUROPA 2018 - Bridges
Issue Date: 2 May 2018

Two stamps with face values of €0,34c €0,64c, also available on Full Sheets (8 stamps per sheet), Cancelled To Order (CTO), Booklet and on a single Official FDC.
NOTE: Unfortunately, all of the FDCs we received from Cyprus Post were damaged by creasing across the cover. We are addressing the situation and hope to have it rectified soon.

This year, the common theme adopted by the European postal organisation PostEurop for its Europa 2018 issue is “Bridges”. The Europa 2018 issue consists of two stamps illustrating two bridges in Cyprus.

The €0.34 stamp shows the Κelefos (Tzielefos) Bridge in the District of Pafos, a few kilometres away from Agios Nikolaos village, in an idyllic area full of plane trees and rich in wildlife and flora. This little medieval stone bridge is the biggest bridge in Cyprus constructed across the Diarizos River supplying the Arminou dam located further down.

The €0.64 stamp shows the Akapnou Bridge in the District of Limassol. This little Venetian stone bridge has two arches and is located in the north-west of the Akapnou village, across a tributary of Vasilikos. This is a very interesting bridge since it has not been affected by time and we can still see the foundations of the little road going from east to west.
