Thracian Gold Treasure

Unlike some of the other newfound treasures, this golden ring or brooch looks like it was influenced by art of the ancient Greeks, with whom the Thracians traded. The nearby gold-filled tombs at Sveshtari have been looted since ancient times, but this newfound hoard appears to have been better hidden than most. There are literally hundreds of tombs, and they're all subterranean. They were purposely built to try and avoid looting.
