The Borovo Treasure

The treasure is discovered in 1974 near the town of Borovo. The ritual set of five silver vessels is an extraordinary monument of the Thracian culture from the 4th century BC. The cult scenes and zoomorphous shapes, are illustrating a myth – the sacred story of the write-less Thracians.
