Thracian Centre Halka Bunar

Thracian Centre Halka Bunar
Type: Archaeological site

The remains of the Thracian Centre Halka Bunar were found near Gorno Belevo village (municipality Bratya Daskalovi), on a low slant terrace, north of the karst spring with the same name. In Roman times, a thick wall surrounded the spring from all sides.

These lands have always been in the centre of the political territory of Odrysian State. They belong to the triangle formed by the well-known Odrysian towns Philippopolis - to the west, Seuthopolis - to the north, and the hypothetical Beroe - to the east.

The site was registered in 1999 during regular terrain visitations. It was already dogged by treasure hunters and there were one large ditch dug and many smaller holes. From these openings were visible the remains of a Thracian sanctuary of significant size and dense concentration of archeological materials.

Despite the treasure hunter damages there were found many ceramic fragments and other finds. One of them is extremely precious - a fragment of a gray vessel, with a graffiti (dated from end-IV - early III century BC) in Greek on it, most probably a part of the name of a Thracian king (Amatok or Satok).
