Vratza Treasure

Beautiful jewellery was discovered near the woman: a gold wreath and earrings, the work of Greek goldsmiths, and many gold rosettes which had ornamented the veil in which the woman`s body had been wrapped. These rosettes were made by a Thracian goldsmith. The burials are dated between 380 and 350 B.C. Treasure hunters had been at work on the second tomb, probably in Antiquity, and had damaged and destroyed the burials in it. Only two little pitchers had been spared, one made of gold and one of silver, and a bronze plaque. Several bundles of arrow tips indicate that a man was buried in this tomb, while parts of gold earrings indicate that a woman must also have been buried there. The third tomb had been completely robbed in Antiquity. The second and third burials may have been one or two decades later than the first one.
In this period the region of Vratza was held by the Triballi, who had subjected the Moesians. Of the objects found in the tombs we are concerned with those which appear to have been made by Thracian or Greek goldsmiths.
The greave found in Vratza deserves special attention, being undoubtedly a masterpiece of the Thracian art crafts.
