The Borovo treasure

The treasure is discovered in 1974 near Borovo. The ritual set, consisting of five silver vessels, is an extraordinary monument of the culture of the Thracians from the 4th century BC. The ritual scenes and zoomorphous forms illustrate the visible myth – the sacred narrative of the non-writing Thracians.
