IPTC INFO
CaptionAccording to the historical evidence Kabile was conquered by Philip of Macedonia in 341 BC and later for a certain period of time his son Alexander III the Great of Macedonia resided here. During the first half of the 3rd century BC Kabile was a residence of the Thracian tsars Spartok and Skostok. Kabile was also the only town in the internal part of Thrace which had its own monetary house where royal and town emissions were coined within the period 3rd – 2nd century BC. After it was conquered by the Romans in the beginning of the 2nd century AD Kabile was turned into one of the most important Roman camps in the Thracian province. The town ceased to exist after the Avars demolished it in the end of 6th century AD. In contrast to other ancient towns no contemporary settlement was built on the territory of Kabile and this turned it into an easy for exposure and excavations site. The finds made in the region are exhibited in the archaeological museum of the reservation. The open air excavations which can be viewed without paying an admission fee include remains of basilicas and churches fortified walls and public buildings. --- Surce: http://bulgariatravel.org___________________________ depiction of a mounted warrior with captive on a gold ewer pitcher from the Treasure of Nagyszentmiklós.
