Roman ornaments found in Sozopol, Bulgaria

Excavations by Bulgarian archeologists Dimitar Nedev and Tsonya Drajeva have unearthed Roman artifacts including a "massive gold ring and a gold leaf from a royal crown" at the site of the ancient city of Apollonia, now Sozopol.

The ring and the leaf date from the 1st – 4th centuries CE. Apollonia, on the Black Sea, was an independent state during Roman times.
