Archaeologists Uncover Unique Medallion Near Bulgaria's Harmanli
Archaeologists have uncovered a unique for Bulgaria medallion with spiralled snake heads in an excavation at the Kastra Rubra fortress, near Harmanli, reports Dnes.bg.
The dig started a month ago and ended on October 7. The team of professor Boris Borisov found more than 170 artifacts, more than half of which are coins.
“The site is very rich,” he told journalists. “For three years we found 500 items. We have coins from the early Byzantine Empire, a clay stamp, iron belt buckles, other belt ornaments.”
According to Borissov, the early Byzantine fortress, which his team studies, is part of a huge complex, which includes two necropolises and the Kastra Rubra way station, mentioned in II c. A.D. manuscripts.
