THE letnitza TREASURE- Bulgaria’s Thracian Heritage

The Letnitza treasure was discovered in 1964 – contained by a bronze cauldron buried with its mouth downward.
The find has been dated to the mid-fourth century BC and consists of 22 gold and silver-and-gilt appliqués making up the decoration of horse trappings with numerous scenes depicting warriors on horseback, animal fights, mythical creatures. The appliqués with human figure representations are truly remarkable. They illustrate the hero’s initiation trial. The plaques show him in various contexts – as a horseman defeating a bear and a wolf, in a scene of hierogamy, etc. The appliqués from the Letnitza hoard throw light on the mythological beliefs of the ancient Thracians.
