Yes, Cyprus is a country and has been independent of Greece since the beginning. The first Greeks moved to Cyprus right after the Trojan war and remained there. That's why in the Cypriot dialect some people still use some ancient Greek words.
Cyprus belonged to so many conquerors including the Romans, the Egyptians, British, Turks, etc.
Now the name Agathoni sounds Greek but I don't know where it is.
