A National History Museum (NHM) archaeological expedition has discovered a tomb near the Bulgarian coastal town of Sozopol, NHM said on August 7, according to Bulgarian news agency BTA.
A bowl with a Greek inscription was discovered by the team, which is headed by Krustina Panayotova of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS).
It is assumed that this object, along with others, was buried along with the deceased.
The finds have been taken by NHM Director Bozhidar Dimitrov to the NHM laboratory for conservation and restoration. The inscription, once deciphered, is expected to lend new insight into the Ancient Greek city-state of Apollonia Pontica, on the current site of Sozopol.
The Sofia News Agency's coverage is a bit better:
Archaeologists from the Bulgaria's National History Museum have unearthed a tomb of a citizen, who lived in the ancient city of Apollonia, which is today's Black Sea town of Sozopol.
The team of Krastina Panayotova is working on the Harmani beach of Sozopol, a site which archaeologist have been exploring for many years now. During regular excavations Panayotova's team stumbled upon the tomb.
When the scientist opened it they found many pottery, the skeleton of a man, who lived some 2,500 years ago and a huge ceramic bowl with an inscription in ancient Greek.
The bowl has been already taken for a thorough expertise and a team of linguists was called to decipher the inscription. When this is done, the Head of the Museum Bozhidar Dimitrov hopes the scientists will get a further understanding of Apollonia Pontica - the first democratic state in the lands of today's Bulgaria.
The interesting thing for this artefact is that it was unearthed in the family part of the necropolis, where Histiyani, the tyrant of Milet, was buried.
