Bulgaria's precious Thracian head repaired for EUR 66 000

Date: 21.01.2006

A unique Thracian bronze head unearthed in Bulgaria has been renovated for 66 000 euros, media said.

The piece was brought back to Bulgaria from Italy, where experts worked on its repair for three months.

The head is believed to portray King Sevt III, whose vault was found by Bulgarian archaeologists in 2004.

Back then, the oldest and largest Thracian tomb disclosed so far on Bulgarian land emerged from beneath the Golyamata Kosmatka mound.

The archeological team's head Georgi Kitov, called also Bulgaria's "Indiana Jones" explained that the excavations have revealed a 13-metre long passage and two halls walled up with stones behind the facade.

The tomb has amazed archeologists with its first-of-the-kind doors made of marble and decorated with human figures, iron nail imitations and blue-end-red sculptural ornaments.
