    I wonder if you know of any Jewish sources about those events as they unfolded in Cyprus? Is there any evidence of a mass conversion of the Jewish survivors to the local religions? We do know that Jewish communities on the island did reappear under the Byzantines and these were probably composed of a new genetic pool.
