Ancient Nessebar Reveals Its Secrets

Standart Daily, 14.09.2010

Bulgarian archaeologists have found a bronze hydria in a tomb dating back to 4th century BC during excavations in the Necropolis of Mesambria in the Black Sea city of Nessebar. The archaeologists, who opened the tomb on Thursday, have explained that the hydria was an ancient vessel for storing liquids like water, wine or a mix of water and wine. The discovered object has three handles with exquisite detailed decoration on them. According to the scientists, the hydria they found has been used for storing the remains of a dead person who had been cremated first. In their words, the fact that the object is very well preserved and does not need any restoration makes it valuable. The hydria is the first object of this kind to be found in excavations around Nessebar. It would help archaeologists study the funeral rituals of the ancient people who lived in these places.
