Thursday, October 17, 2013
SOFIA, BULGARIA—A cellar containing Greek amphorae has been discovered in the Bulgarian coastal town of Nesebar by Aneliya Bozhkova of the National Archaeological Institute and Petya Kiyashkina of the Ancient Nesebar Museum. The 30 amphorae date to the fifth century B.C. and probably held wine and olive oil. Though the house above the cellar was destroyed, the amphorae were largely intact.
