THE MOGILANSKA MOGILA TREASURE

The Mogilanska Mogila mound was investigated  in 1965-1966. The gifts found there indicate the existence of a royal burial dated from the 4th century BC.

The bigger chamber of the tomb housed a gold laurel wreath. It weighs 205 g and strikes with its particularly realistic workmanship. The decoration is complete with earrings of massive gold with sphinx images and floral ornamentation.

Among the objects found were also silver and bronze vessels, fragments of armour and a silver-and-gilt greave with a female face represented on it, probably one of a goddess. The abundance of serpentine elements emphasizes the significance of the image as a symbol of the king's authority over the territory of his kingdom.
