In 2005 Bulgarian archaeologists will aim at discovering the body of the ancient Thracian king Seutus III, the archaeologist Georgi Kitov said Friday.

The archaeologists will search for the king's remains at the Goliamata Kosmatka tomb, where they found a bronze helmet with a sign reading that it has belonged to the ancient king.

This is a clear proof that Seutus III has been buried in this place, according to Kitov.

About BGN 180,000 will be needed for three months of excavations, Kitov also said.

The Goliamata Kosmatka finds will be exhibited in full in the National Museum of History in Sofia. After 2006 it is expected to start its journey in the museums worldwide. There have been invitations from the US, Japan, Spain, France and South Korea, the archaeologist said.
