More Famous People

I was soundly beaten in yesterday's "Name a Famous Belgian" game - Jean Claude Van Damme trumped Poirot.

So today I thought we'd try a variation. Name a Famous Cypriot.

I've found three that people should have heard of, not including my favourite newsreader...

Bee:

Zeno's certainly famous - He's the guy who said that movement must be an illusion, because for an arrow to get from one point to another, first it has to get half-way. But to get half-way, if has to get 1/4 of the way, but to get 1/4 of the way...

...Therefore it never moves. Which is of course not what is observed.

Apparently I met Makarios when I was about 1.

There's also Cat Stevens and Tracy Emin.

And most famously of all, Aprhodite, Goddess of Love.
