Byzantine church treasure found in Bulgaria

According to the head of the expedition Boyan Totev, this is the first such discovery in Bulgaria. He said the small amphora full of bronze Byzantine coins from the sixth century AD was most likely church mite, buried in the ground during an invasion of Slavs or Avars.

The discovery was made on the territory of a small fortress, most likely built in late antiquity around a basilica to protect it. The church itself was built during the late Roman empire and existed till the end of the sixth century A.D.

Archaeologist have found late Roman, early Byzantine and old Bulgarian layers, as well as late Roman artefacts.
