Panagyurishte gold treasure
It dates back to IV century BC. The finding consists of nine solid golden utensils, decorated with various zoomorphic and anthropomorphic figures, including amphora-rhyton, three jugs-rhytons, four rhytons and a phial.
The treasure is unique not only because of its weight in gold - a total of 6.1 kilograms, but also because of the originality of forms and decorations, and its exquisite craftsmanship. It is decorated with mythology scenes - images of gods and heroes.
It was made in a local Thracian workshop and some believe that it belonged to Seuthes III.
Used by the ruler in religious rituals.
The amphora-rhyton is used in twinning with another ruler – both must drink from the two holes at the bottom.
