TOMB - 2,5 km south-west of Sveshtari (a village 42 km
north-east of Razgrad). Uncovered during excavations of a sepulchral
mound. Dating back, in approximation, to the first half of the 3rd C.
B.C. The central camera of the vault is rich in decoration - it is
designed as a facade of a temple with the image of a horseman, being
bestowed with a golden wreath by a goddess, and a religious procession;
on three of the walls - a high relief with 10 stone statues of clad
women figures under a common entablement. The funeral rites, the
building technique, the architectural design and the decoration,
distinguished for Hellenistic models, provide evidence that a Thracian
ruler has been buried there. The sepulchre is included in the list of
monuments of the world cultural and natural heritage compiled at UNESCO.
