In Bulgaria, archaeologists have discovered a gold chain with three beads in Roman baths, The history blog reports. Such a find was discovered in the Deultum National Archaeological Reserve, which is located in southeastern Bulgaria.

Earlier, the city of Deultum was the first Roman city on the territory of modern Bulgaria and the second Roman colony on the Balkan Peninsula. It was founded back in 69 AD by Emperor Vespasian. This city served as a strategic site and was the main port before reaching the Black Sea.

Deultum flourished through trade and copper mining. Soon the small settlement turned into a large one, with wide streets and numerous temples, an amphitheater and public baths.

It was in one of the bath rooms that a gold necklace with beads was discovered. It was broken, so it is assumed that the necklace originally had more jewelry than there are now. In addition, a tiny 2nd century earring was found in the next room, which is adorned with small glass balls.

It is assumed that both jewelry did not belong to the same person. Most likely, the women had so many jewelry that when they got together, they forgot to put them all on. Therefore, they remained lying in the secluded corners of the public Roman baths.

Scientists believe that the gold jewelry found speaks to how rich and prosperous the city was thanks to its connection with the Roman Empire. And the women who lived in those days on the territory of modern Bulgaria wore the same expensive and beautiful jewelry as the Egyptians and Italians.
