General information

Discovered in 1982 in a mound, this 3rd century BC Getic tomb reflects the fundamental structural principles of Thracian cult buildings. The tomb's architectural decor is considered to be unique, with polychrome half-human, half-plant caryatids and painted murals. The ten female figures carved in high relief on the walls of the central chamber and the decorations of the lunette in its vault are the only examples of this type found so far in the Thracian lands. It is a remarkable reminder of the culture of the Getae, a Thracian people who were in contact with the Hellenistic and Hyperborean worlds, according to ancient geographers.In 2012, archaeologists uncovered a significant treasure near the village. The treasure included a golden ring, 44 female figure depictions and 100 golden buttons, found in 150 tombs from the 4th century BC.It has been suggested that it is part of the site of the Getan city of Helis.JOURNAL, Delev, P., Lysimachus, the Getae, and Archaeology, The Classical Quarterly, New Series, 384–401, Vol. 50, No. 2, 2000, 10.1093/cq/50.2.384, 1558897, 50, SveshtariTumulus.jpg|The Entrance to the Tomb MoundThomb-Sveshtari.jpg|The interior of the tombThomb-Sveshtari-2.jpg|The Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari
