19 November 2009 | A unique decorated glass rhyton, or ancient drinking vessel, was discovered by archaeologists in a tumulus near the village of Karanovo in south-eastern Bulgaria.

The glass vessel is decorated with the image of an unknown animal, Bulgarian media reported today.

According to experts, such glass artefacts are extremely rare not just for Bulgaria, but for the whole world.
