"Nicosia" in Europe, not Asia
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:18:17 EST
When specifying the timezone setting, Nicosia, IIRC, is displayed as
Asia/Nicosia, but it is actually in Europe.
Glibc is where this informatino comes from.
This is "fixed" since glibc-2.1.95-1, official tzcode2000g and tzdata2000g
# Classically, Cyprus belongs to Asia; e.g. see Herodotus, Histories, I.72.
# However, for various reasons many users expect to find it under Europe.
Link Asia/Nicosia Europe/Nicosia
so you can find it both in Asia/Nicosia and Europe/Nicosia.
