THE LOUKOVIT TREASURE

In 1953, a silver treasure was found at the Balana site, east of the town of Loukovit. It consists of 6 cups, 5 phialae, 4 jugs, 3 incomplete elements of horse-trappings and over 300 tubes, semi-spherical plaques, small rectangular and oblong plaques with representations of bull and human heads, as well as sitting sphinxes.

The researchers have failed to detect any traces of settlements or burial sites. This is a clear evidence that the treasure must have been hidden. The objects were made in the 4th century BC and were buried at the beginning of the 3rd century BC.
