Tenta or Kalavasos-Tenta is a neolithic settlement in Cyprus, 4 km south of Kalavasos in the Larnaca District. Tenta was discovered in 1947 by Pophyrios Dikaios, and was excavated by the British archaeologists Ian Todd from 1976 to 1984. Excavations were carried out each summer from 1976 though 1979, and a final summer season took place in 1984. The excavations were funded for the first four reasons by the National Science Foundation (USA).
