Bulgaria's Panagyurishte treasure, the mask and ring of Teres along with newly excavated antique from the sea town of Nessebur will be on display from June 3 2011 at culture centre Sea Casino (in the city's Sea Garden) in Bourgas, BNT reported. The Thracian treasure will be in Bourgas for three months. The artifact collection consists of a phial, an amphora and seven rhytons of a total weight of 6164 kg of 23-karat gold. Every item is beautifully and painstakingly decorated with tapestries of Thracian mythology, ancient customs and scenes of common daily life. Dated from the fourth to third centuries BCE, they are believed to have been part of a royal ceremonial set by Thracian king Seuthes III. Vesela Yordanova, PR and culture manager at Bourgas municipality, said that the combination of the treasure and the mask on display would attract many tourists. A huge light show will open the exhibition on June 3 and entrance will be free all night long, Yordanova said.
