Huge Imperial Tomb was Discovered Near Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Archaeologists discovered a huge imperial tomb 20 km from Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Its measures are 7 to 7 meters and 5 meters high. It was found on the top of the Maltepe Mound, the largest on the Balkans, near the village of Manole.

The roof is made of marble and it is not dome-shaped, but square. It is believed that the tomb is from the third century, and in the tomb rests either Thracian ruler or Roman nobleman.

The only such tomb was discovered in the Roman city of Viminacium in Serbia, where rests Emperor Marcus Aurelius Carinus, the 49th Emperor of the Roman Empire.
