The club was founded in 1978 and was named after the ancient Cypriot revolutionary Onesilos (Onesilos captured the city of Salamis and usurped his brother’s throne; he was able to win every city on the island except for the Graeco-Phoenician city-state of Amathus, which stayed loyal to the Persians).

Team History

Onesillo died at 497 BC and he was the brother of king Gorgos (Gorgus) of the Greek city-state of Salamis on the island of Cyprus. - Cyprus was a part of the Persian Empire but when the Ionians rebelled from Persian rule, Onisillos used the occasion to capture the city of Salamis and usurp his brother’s throne; he was able to win every city on the island except for the Graeco-Phoenician city-state of Amathus, which stayed loyal to the Persians.

In 497 BC, the Persians, with the help of the Phoenician navy, mounted an attack on Cyprus. Some of the Ionian colonies sent ships to assist Onesilos. In the ensuing battle, the Ionian fleet was able to defeat the Phoenician navy. Onesilos then led an army against the Persian general, Artybius. While Artybius was killed, the Persians won the battle during which Onesilos was killed. As a result, the Ionian fleet retreated from Cyprus and five months later, the Persians regain control of Cyprus. Onesilos’ brother, Gorgus Chersides, was then reinstated by the Persians as king of Salamis.

The club was founded in 1978 originally as a football club (until 2014 which was resolved) and then at the end of 90's to a Basketball club and was participating to the second division men until 2015. Its academies are still alive but the Men's team is actually resolved and will probably close all the academies by the end of 2016..
