In 1931 at Agighiol, a village near Tulcea, some treasure hunters were devastating an archeological site. The authorities came quickly trying to catch the treasure hunters but failed to catch them. Shortly after this the authorities started the research of the site for relics. The researches led to new findings, they found a big funeral complex with several chambers. The big tomb had two big rooms, a lobby some outbuildings. In one of the chambers were found horses skeletons. The sacrifice of horses was a common practice in the tombs of Thracian origin and also Scythian origin. The site is better known for the big treasure that was found in the two main rooms.In one of the rooms were found the remains of a man who most probably was a prince considering the treasure that was in his tomb and also an inscription found in the tomb.In the second tomb was found a skeleton of a woman buried also with jewelry made of gold or other precious metals. The treasure most probably dates since IV century BC.Among the things found in the tomb, we also found a name inscribed on a silver vessel. The name most probably is the name of the deceased.Kotios Egbeo,is the name found inscribed, a common name of the Thracian rulers.
The entire treasure that was found was displayed in Bucharest but unfortunately a big part of the treasure was lost during the war, in 1945 when the building where it was displayed was bombarded. The rest of the treasure that didn’t got lost than it is displayed in the History Museum in Bucharest. The treasure that remained is composed of a gold crest that is beautiful crafted. On the front side of the crest are crafted two big eyes, the eyes are supposed to protect the bearer of danger. #history#modernart#romempire #passportready#travelgram #traveladdicted#livetoexplore#ig_romania#romaniamagica#visitromania#romania#romaniamea#kings_alltags#historyofart#bucharest#bucarest
История о том, как мы с Сашей покоряли горные серпантины, долгие дороги, крутые повороты, поднимались к облаками, наблюдали как солнце скрывается за пиками гор, озаряя золотым светом пейзажи, слушали звон колокольчиков овечьего стада, подставляли лица встречному ветру. Это все о нашем прекрасном отпуске в румынских Карпатах 🇷🇴 #Romania#transalpina#dn67c#вештаюсьсвiтом#mountains#carpathian#vacation
