Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Ancient Theatre in Plovdiv Older by Nearly a Century BGNES

A newly-discovered sign reads that the Ancient Theatre in Plovdiv was built in the 90’s of the 1st century AD and not as previously thought between 116 and 117 AD, announced the Mayor of Plovdiv Ivan Totev and archaeologists Maya Martinova and Nikolay Sharankov, who read the sign.
