Expulsion of Jews from Cyprus [Roman Empire] [Unconfirmed]

Commentary from other sources:
1) Jews were forbidden to live in Cyprus.

2) They attempted to convert the Jews to Christianity under the ideas of Jesus. Under the leadership of Artemion, the Cypriot Jews participated in the great rebellion against the Romans ruled by Trajan in 117 AD. and they are reported by Dio Cassius to have massacred 240,000 Greeks. In punishment a severe law was enacted, according to which no Jew was allowed to land on Cypriot soil, not even in case of shipwreck.”
