In the Thracian paradynast’s home near Bulgaria’s Brodilovo, the scholars have come across a large amount of iron billets for the production of tools and weapons.

What is more, near Brodilovo, they have also stumbled upon two coin treasures (the discovery of the first coin treasure was announced in November 2015).

One of the coin treasures contains silver tetradrachms from several Ancient Greek polises on the coasts of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea: Maroneia, Odessos (today’s Bulgarian Black Sea city of Varna), and Thasos (located on the Island of Thasos) as well as coins of several rulers of the Kingdom of the Thracian tribe Asti: Mostis, Sadala II the Astian, and his son Cotys II the Astian.

Together with these coins, the archaeologists also found silver bracelets and earrings.

The second coin treasure recently found near Brodilovo consists of silver tetradrachms from Odessos, Messembria (today’s Nessebar), Athens, Maroneia, and coins of the above-mentioned Thracian ruler Mostis.
