1. Kinyras and Kinnaru
Kinyras of Cyprus
Which once Kinyras gave him as a friendship-gift.
For he had heard a great report on Cyprus—the Achaeans
Were to sail in ships to Troy—wherefore
He gave the corselet to him, cultivating favor with the king. 
The Return of Kinnaru

In the case of the kinnāru—an early WS or areal form, cognate with both Heb. kinnōr and ‘Gk.’ kinýra  —d(iĝir)is followed by a second determinative, giš (‘wood’), which in Mesopotamian lexical texts classifies objects made entirely or substantially of wood, including stringed-instruments.  So there is no doubt that we are dealing with a physical Lyre that was somehow regarded as Divine.
Plan of this Study and Preliminary Conclusions
Pre-Greek, Greek, and Phoenician Cyprus
We may avoid the long-running—but vital—debates about the exact identity and provenance of the several groups mentioned, and the historical accuracy of Ramses’ claim to have prevailed in an epic land-and-sea showdown during the eighth year of his reign—perhaps 1177 (Figure 1). His ‘settlement’ of the ‘vanquished’ in his own lands will have included the Peleset and other groups who occupied what now became Philistia—southern ‘Palestine’, formerly under long-term NK control.  This probably also explains the Cypriot cities which appear elsewhere among his triumphs.
