Panagyurishte Gold Treasure will be displayed in Bourgas (photos)

After returning from an exhibition in Dubai, the museum copy of the Panagyurishte gold treasure will be displayed in the Archaeological Museum in the coastal city of Bourgas.

It will be on display in the "Tresor" hall of the museum from May 18 to August 30.

All nine vessels from the treasure, which are made of 23-carat gold, will be displayed. Its total weight is just over 6 kg.

The decoration on the objects depicts scenes from ancient Greek mythology, with a number of deities and heroes - Hera, Athena, Aphrodite, Apollo, Artemis, Dionysus, Heracles, Theseus, Paris, Amazons, Bacchantes and Sphinxes. Visitors will be able to see it for the first time at the Night of Museums on Saturday, May 18.


The Panagyurishte gold treasure is by far the rischest and most brilliant gold hoard discovered, which was unearthed by accident by three brothers in 1949 during clay digging near the town of Panagyurishte, central Bulgaria.

It consists of nine solid gold vessels (a phiale, an amphora and seven rhytons) with total weight of 6.164 kg of 23-karat gold. All of the objects are richly and skilfully decorated with scenes of Thracian myths, customs and life.
