A golden wreath of finely crafted olive branches and ring from the burial of an Odrysian aristocrat found at the Golyamata Mogila, situated between the villages of Zlatinitsa and Malomirovo in the Yambol region, Bulgaria. Dated to the mid century BC.
The Thracian civilization which inhabited the land south of the Balkan mountains had formed the Odrysian kingdom in the 5th century BC along the banks of the Maritza. King Seuthes III moved its capital to Seutopolis (present-day Kazanluk in Southern Bulgaria) and was buried there, in the Valley of the Thracian Kings, around 300 BC. It is thought that the Panagyurishte treasure was used to serve ceremonial wine in his palace.
The newly discovered Ancient Thracian inscription from Aquae Calidae is dated to AD, about a decade before the Odrysian Kingdom, and respectively Ancient Thrace, was fully conquered by the Roman Empire.
